On Oct. 5, a man in Las Vegas allegedly refused to break his car window despite the fact that his 1-year-old daughter was locked inside.
Officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department offered their help, but the man, Sidney Deal, 27, declined and insisted his daughter was fine because the air conditioning was on, authorities said.
By the time officers smashed the window, Deal’s daughter, Sayah, was dead.
The man was being held on a $20,000 bond.
According to police, Deal’s girlfriend said the couple had just finished having a fight. She reportedly said she told him to leave with his daughter, and Deal complied.
