A New Jersey father's bail has been set at $5 million after police said he left his 2-year-old son to die following a crash during a chase in which police were pursuing the suspect for allegedly stealing speakers from a Philadelphia-area Walmart.

Twenty-seven-year-old Christopher Kuhn, of Hamilton, remained in the Bucks County jail Wednesday without an attorney listed in court records on third-degree murder and other charges, The Associated Press reported.

Tullytown police say Kuhn fled the store at Levittown Town Center early Tuesday afternoon after taking the speakers worth $228.

Police say Kuhn ran a red light and collided with two other vehicles, and kept running even after his son was thrown from the wreckage. Kuhn's son wasn't in a safety seat, police added.

Officers caught up to Kuhn after a short foot chase. Nobody else was hurt in the crash.
