Canada - Quinn Butt, 5, found slain in burning home, Carbonear, NL, 24 April 2016
Her name hasn't been officially released yet.
Police have charged a Newfoundland and Labrador man with first-degree murder and arson after his five-year-old daughter's body was pulled from their burning home this past weekend. Trent Butt, 37, was also inside the Carbonear home when emergency crews responded early Sunday morning...
"Evidence from the scene supports a charge of first-degree murder, indicating there's some degree of premeditation," RCMP Staff Sgt. Howard Gale told CBC News...
Court records show Butt faced three assault charges against his wife in the past, but all were dismissed.
CBC News has learned the father was separated from the mother of the girl, and they had been sharing custody.
