New Orleans Police say a child was stabbed to death Tuesday morning in Bywater.
NOPD tweeted shortly after 7:30 a.m. they were investigating a "homicide by cutting" in the 3100 block of North Rampart.
The child was strangled and stabbed by her father, NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said.
The father was identified as Mark Hambrick. Officers said Hambrick said "God told him to kill" his daughter.
