MANILA – The three-year-old child who was slammed on the concrete floor by her father died before dawn on Monday, the toddler's mother confirmed.
The child did not survive due to the injuries she sustained after being slammed on the floor by her father just outside the La Paz Police Station in Iloilo last Saturday.
A close-circuit television (CCTV) camera captured the incident.
The child's mother said the father of the victim has shown changes in behavior after she left him about two months ago. The suspect's relatives also noticed these changes.
"Before ako nag-trabaho sa Iloilo, nag-layas ako kasi binugbog niya ako noong gabi ng July 7. Mga 2 months lang ang nakalipas, parang wala na siya sa sarili." she told ABS-CBN News in an interview over the phone.
Meanwhile, a psychiatrist said it is possible that the suspect is suffering from a mental disorder.
The suspect is facing parricide charges. – reports from Joyce Clavecillas and Rio Sumagaysay, ABS-CBN News Iloilo
