THE MOTHER of a two-year-old girl who was murdered in Melbourne by her ex-partner says she will never “ever, ever, ever” forgive him for killing their child.

Australian Ramazan Acar, 24, was sentenced to life imprisonment on Friday for the murder of his daughter, Yazmina. The young girl had been stabbed.

Yazmina’s mother and Acar’s former partner Rachelle D’Argent told the Australian TV show 60 Minutes that after taking the child, Acar called D’Argent and sent her text messages taunting her and claiming he would kill the child.

Later, he called her to say he had stabbed the young girl because he wanted “to annoy” her. The body was found by police several hours later.

Acar was dubbed ‘the Facebook killer’ because he had threatened to kill the child on his Facebook profile page. The Herald Sun reports that on the day of the child’s death, Acar posted: “Bout to kill ma kid.”

D’Argent told the court that Acar had never harmed their daughter before and that on the day he took her, Yazmina had been delighted to see him. She said she let the girl go with her father, but didn’t realise he would not bring her home.
