A California man, Adam Slater, 49, is currently in jail after prosecutors say that he murdered his one-year-old daughter by throwing her over a cliff.
According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, deputies were initially called to respond to a "stabbing". When they arrived they found a female victim, Adam's pregnant wife 23 year off Ashley Grom, suffering from multiple injuries sustained during a domestic dispute. She was later taken to the hospital, and she and the unborn child are in stable condition.
Adam, who police identify as the "suspect" in the domestic violence report, then fled the scene with the couple's 1 year old daughter. Later his vehicle was reportedly involved in a car crash. According to police, witnesses went to help those injured in the crash, but were stabbed by Slater. Police say that the 49 year old then threw his infant daughter to her death over a cliff, and then ran into a canyon.
Slater was later transported to the local hospital and treated for his injuries. Upon his release he is expected to be charged with murder.
