This happened in Australia last year, the prick has just been sentenced to life. He killed his two year old daughter to get revenge on her mother.
Even as two-year-old Yazmina's fearful eyes brimmed with tears, her father was not persuaded to change his mind from what he was about to do.
Consumed by hatred for his ex-partner, Ramazan Acar stabbed their daughter to death and later admitted it was for revenge.
Earlier, Acar had posted a chilling message on Facebook, "Bout 2 kill ma kid".
The 24-year-old was jailed on Friday for life, with 33-years' non-parole, for a murder the Victorian Supreme Court judge described as the worst possible kind.
Yazmina's mother Rachelle D'Argent said justice had been done.
On the day Acar took Yazmina from her mother last November, his daughter had run to greet him with a big smile on her face.
He convinced his ex-partner to let him take Yazmina for a drive to the local milk bar for chocolate.
It was the last time she saw her daughter alive.
The only account of the chilling events that followed came from a conversation Acar had with two psychiatrists.
Acar told them that as he got out of the car armed with the knife and approached Yazmina, who was playing, he noticed a worried look in her eyes, and she began to cry.
He said Yazmina looked at him in fear, "as though he were the devil".
Acar had taunted Ms D'Argent with phone calls, text messages and Facebook posts, threatening to kill Yazmina and saying it was for "pay bk, u slut", as he drove around Melbourne's suburbs.
At one point he put Yazmina on the phone to Ms D'Argent, and the toddler uttered her last words to her mother: "I love you."
After killing Yazmina, he told Ms D'Argent during a phone call "I've killed her to get back at you" and "Even if I go behind bars, I know that you are suffering."
Acar was serving a suspended sentence at the time of the murder for assaulting Ms D'Argent, who had taken out an intervention order against him.
He had 31 prior convictions.
In court, Acar nodded arrogantly in agreement when Justice Curtain said he had told police that night to throw him in a room and rot, because he had killed his daughter and wanted to be punished.
But when Justice Elizabeth Curtain later highlighted that Acar blamed others, including police and his father, for failing to intervene to stop him, he was visibly exasperated.
She said it was clear that Acar's judgment was impaired by a hatred and desire for revenge, feelings which had been fuelled further by consuming alcohol.
Acar was also angry after a woman he had been seeing had told him earlier that day their relationship was moving too fast.
Meanwhile, Ms D'Argent was moving on with a new man in her life.
Justice Curtain said the murder was a fundamental breach of a parent's most fundamental obligation.
"She was killed by the one man in the world whose duty was to love, nurture and protect her," she said.
"You committed this murder for the worst possible motives; revenge and spite.
"You killed your daughter to get back at her mother."
Outside court, Ms D'Argent read a statement devoted to her daughter whom she referred to as Mimi.
"Mummy told you there would be justice for you," she said.
"Forever you will be in my heart and I know that you will always be smiling down on us."
