A man in Sukamaju Baru subdistrict in Depok, West Java, has been arrested for allegedly beating his stepdaughter to death in their house on Friday. Cimanggis Police head Comr. Suyud said the alleged incident was reported by a neighbor.

Police said a witness reported seeing the man, Hari Kurniawan, 24, slamming his 2-year-old stepdaughter onto the floor of their rented house because the girl would not stop crying.

A neighbor, Latifah, 57, said she witnessed the incident from outside the house while the 2-year-old’s mother, Eni, 18, was at work.

Not long after, Eni returned home. Police said Latifah told her right away that her daughter had just been tortured by her husband. Eni reportedly then went inside and found her daughter dead.

Latifah and her husband reported the incident to the community head, who then filed a report to the Cimanggis Police.
