Police in Winnipeg say the estranged father of a three-year-old girl has been charged with murder in her death.
Police say officers were sent to investigate a report on Wednesday that the man had abducted the young girl from her mother at knifepoint.
About 15 minutes later the father was taken into custody outside a parked vehicle.
The girl was found inside the car with stab wounds.
She was brought to hospital but later died.
Her 28-year-old father has been charged with first-degree murder and is in custody.
