Yup, this nigga hurled that little goblina straight into a ravine.
That’s some quintessential African parenting right there.
A California father has been accused of tossing his one-year-old daughter off of a steep cliff to her death after allegedly stabbing her pregnant mother and a bystander who tried to help.
Adam Slater, 49, from Palm Desert, crashed his vehicle on Highway 74 in the Coachella Valley at around 9am on Wednesday morning, police said.
Authorities discovered his overturned car along Highway 74, around half an hour after reports of the initial stabbing outside Southwest Church.
The vehicle had come to rest several hundred feet from the road, according to authorities.
A male bystander allegedly intervened to free the young girl, Madalyn Payton Slater, from the car wreckage.
Slater then allegedly snatched his daughter from the Good Samaritan, before stabbing the man and fatally throwing his daughter over a steep cliff into the ravine.
‘Multiple witnesses saw the suspect take the child and throw her over a steep cliff into a ravine. The suspect then fled on foot into the canyon.’
Authorities detained Slater after a brief chase on foot, before recovering the daughter’s body.
Thirty minutes prior, Slater allegedly had stabbed his pregnant wife, Ashley Grome, 23, and left her for dead in an Indian Wells parking lot, police and relatives allege.
Investigators have described the alleged brutal attack as a ‘domestic violence incident’.
Grome’s uncle, Chris Grome, told the station KESQ that his 23-year-old niece, who is six months pregnant with her second child, was stabbed multiple times, including in the stomach and throat, but she managed to fight Slater off.
According to her Facebook page, Grome and Slater got married in March 2018.
In the wake of the rollover crash, Slater was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries.
Following his release on Thursday, Slater was booked into the Indio jail on three felony counts of second-degree murder, attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.
He is being held on $1million bail pending his next court appearance scheduled for Monday morning.
Meanwhile, it has emerged that Slater is registered as a sex offender in California stemming from a 1995 conviction for sexual penetration of a victim with a foreign object by force.
