Guilty: Dad Found Guilty of Trying to Bake His Baby

EUCLID, OH (WOIO) -  A jury found a Euclid man guilty of trying to put his newborn son into a heated gas oven.

Police say 30 year old Sammy G. Hunter, Jr. was high on 'wet' when he turned on the oven at his home on Garden Drive and tried to shove the little boy inside.

Luckily, the baby's mother was able to intervene and stop Hunter.  The little boy was not hurt.

Prosecutors say Hunter also tried to start a fire by using the natural gas line in the home's kitchen.

That's when his girlfriend - with whom he also fathers a two-year-old child - called for help.

Hunter also accused assaulted firefighters when they came to help.
