Man kills daughter after Facebook threat

Melbourne - An Australian man wrote on his Facebook page he was "bout to kill ma kid" minutes before repeatedly stabbing his 2-year-old daughter and leaving her to die, court papers revealed on Wednesday.

Details of the case emerged when Ramazan Acar pleaded guilty in Melbourne Magistrates Court to killing Yazmina Acar in November 2010.

Documents tendered to the court showed that Acar made the comment on the social networking site Facebook, also describing it as "pay bk (back)" for the girl's mother, his former partner Rachelle D'Argent.

The court was told that on the day of the murder, Acar arrived at D'Argent's house and she reluctantly let him take the child to a nearby shop for some chocolate.

He never returned, stabbing the girl in the chest and stomach, and leaving her to die a prolonged death in scrubland in northwest Melbourne.

Acar, aged 24, spoke to D'Argent by phone and sent her text messages after taking Yazmina, at one point telling her she would not get her child back and asking whether he should kill the girl in a car crash or stab her.

"How does it feel to not have your child when I did not have mine for three months?" he told her, Australian news agency AAP reported.

He also said: "I loved you Rachelle and look what you've made me do."

Acar, who was remanded in custody and ordered to face the Victorian Supreme Court later this month for further hearings, also reportedly told police he wanted to kill himself as well but "did not have the balls".
