A man who murdered his two-year-old daughter last year posted Facebook updates about his crime, a Melbourne court has learnt.
Ramazan Acar this morning pleaded guilty to the murder of his daughter Yazmina in November last year.
Acar, 24, of Meadow Heights, did not apply for bail and Magistrate Peter Reardon remanded him to reappear in the Supreme Court later this month.
Yazmina’s body was found in grassland near Greenvale Reservoir, near Broadmeadows in Melbourne’s north, in the early hours of November 18.
Court documents reveal she had been stabbed more than once by her father before she was dumped.
Police, in their summary of the case, said Acar accessed his Facebook page via his mobile phone to post updates.
One, at 7.23pm, read: "Bout 2 kill ma kid". Later, at 7.34pm, he posted: "Pay bk u slut".
Earlier, Yazmina’s mother, Rachelle D’Argent, had received text messages from Acar. One read: "U wanted to convert ma kid do it u wanted to lock me up I did it u wanted 2 b indapendant do it u take full custdy do it u wana kill me il do it wat eva makes u happy nw tel me" (sic).
Another, sent at 7.32pm, read: "It’s ova I did it."
Later, Acar sent Ms D’Argent more text messages — "I h8t you" and "She’s in heaven I feel lyk shit".
At 11.20pm, Acar updated his Facebook status to read: "I lv u mimi". (Mimi was a pet name for Yazmina used by her family.)
Outside court today, Ms D’Argent said the guilty plea had come as a relief.
She said being at court today meant "the world" to her and she now felt her daughter had received justice.
She said she would continue to attend court hearings until Acar was sentenced.
"I wanted him to look me in the eye and he did," Ms D’Argent said. "It was a quick glimpse but enough for him to say he was guilty.
"I’m getting happier, I can say."
Asked what she would say to her daughter, Ms D’Argent said: "Mummy’s always going to be there for you."
As Acar was led from court, a relative of Yazmina shouted ‘‘rot in hell’’ as Ms D’Argent wept and flicked her hand at him.
The police summary said of Yazmina: "The deceased was described as an active, intelligent an engaging child who was deeply loved. She enjoyed Dora the Explorer and riding her pink bicycle."
