Man held after allegedly stabbing toddler daughter to death

Officer Drake Madison says the girl's mother took her to the hospital where she was pronounced dead Friday afternoon.

Los Angeles Police Capt. Stephen Carmona said Saturday that the man, Noe Torres, 28, stabbed his daughter about 11 a.m.in front of family, then set a small fire inside the apartment. Updates have confirmed that did not happen, but the young girl succumbed to the stab wound inflicted by her own father while they were inside the apartment, located, according to a Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) alert, "at 13154 Vanowen St".

Police initially said the child was thrown from the apartment window, but later said that was incorrect.

CBS Local reported that in Valley Glen of the San Fernando Valley, the girl's father, who was believed to be high on methamphetamines, was arrested for the crime. When they arrived they found a second-story apartment unit on fire and discovered a man in an alley also on fire with a large steak knife stuck in his chest.

Madison says the man allegedly stabbed his daughter and set an apartment fire that was quickly doused.

He says the man may have been using methamphetamine. Police are still investigating the stabbing.
