A Phoenix man is charged with first-degree murder after police say he beat his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter to death over the weekend.

In addition to blunt force trauma to the girl's head and torso, police also noticed bite marks on the young girl, which were admittedly caused by her mother's unemployed, live-in boyfriend, 18-year-old Martwane Mackey.

Mackey called police about 2 p.m. from a payphone down the street from the apartment he shared with the girl's mother at 1601 West Missouri Avenue in Phoenix.

When police arrived at the payphone, they found Mackey holding the toddler. She wasn't breathing.

Rescue crews tried to revive the girl, but were unsuccessful and she died.

Because his girlfriend works, and he doesn't, Mackey was tasked with watching the girl and her 1-year-old sister that morning.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Mackey admitted to abusing the girl -- and her 1-year-old sister, who was found to have similar injuries but is expected to survive.

Mackey told police that earlier in the day, the 3-year-old had a "choking incident" that left her unconscious and not breathing at times. Rather than call 9-1-1, Mackey thought biting the girl on the face and torso might bring her back to consciousness, he later told police.

Mackey had no explanation for the bite marks on the girl's younger sister, though.

Mackey admits to abusing the girl, but claims he didn't kill her. He told police he suspected she may have hit her head on the toilet, or something, but maintains that he didn't cause her death.

In addition to the murder charge, Mackey also is charged with two counts of child abuse. He was booked into a Maricopa County Jail on $1 million bond.

Unfortunately, there is no punishment than can bring the victim back.  I wish this stuff could be prevented.  The death penalty is too good for this guy.  His sentence should be as follows:  Sentenced to life in general population.  No protective custody.  Let general population take him within an inch of his life, then take him to the infirmary to heal up.  Repeat this process for the rest of his miserable, pathetic life.

Absolutely fucking disgusting. Eye for an eye. He should be beat to death. How much you want to bet this guy voted for Obama just cause of skin color. Damn this country is going downhill fast.

Heh, this is one of the most moronic posts I have read in awhile.

Though by stretching a bit one could make a corelation between having uncaring parent being the cause of such behavior or at least encouraging such sociopathic behavior and a uncaring govt that let's its citizens suffer from lack of affordable healthcare, a justice system geared to justice for those the rich but not those that can't afford an attorney, etc.

I don't see what Obama has to do with this guy's horrific actions. But I can guarantee he didn't vote for Obama. He was 15 years old in 2008. Idiot.

Wow! You managed to get your "Speak and Spell" hooked up to the internet but yet, never figured out the learning features you were supposed to use to make yourself smarter! The only part of your negative racist rant I agree with is using him FOR target practice! Before you use him for target practice, use some KY on him first. That'll give the sheep on your ranch a break and satisfy everyone else's need for justice! You Jack -Wagon!

If they took him to your ranch looks like he just might fit in because ignorance obviously lives on your ranch.

You must have one of those old computers with no spellcheck or grammar check.  OR you were just educated in the AZ school system.
