Man kills baby daughter with car

A young father who crashed his car into a Los Angeles home - killing his girlfriend and newborn daughter - did so deliberately, police said.

Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese said 21-year-old Eduardo Villareal purposely drove his Cadillac Escalade into the bedroom where the baby and her 19-year-old mother were sleeping late on Sunday night.

Detectives said Villareal had an argument with his girlfriend minutes before the crash and threatened to kill himself and the baby.

Police said Villareal later said he was only trying to kill himself when he drove into the house.

Police said the suspect is being treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and would be arrested for investigation of murder.
