NEW YORK- A man is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and harassment after he tried to sell a woman's two-month-old on Craigslist for $100. Authorities say Paul Marquez had been out with the baby's mother a few times but felt she wasn't paying him enough attention. Police say he was angry with her so he posted the ads on Craigslist with photos of her daughter. The mom got a phone call from a person offering to buy the baby so she called police. A criminal complaint says Marquez says he wanted to get back at the woman. He's held on a $1,000 bail.
