LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a Southern California man with stabbing his 13-month-old daughter to death and then setting his family’s apartment on fire.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday that 48-year-old Noe Torres faces one count each of murder, assault on a child causing death and arson of an inhabited structure or property.

Authorities say Torres stabbed his daughter after a fight with the child’s mother on Oct. 21. He then allegedly set their second-story North Hollywood apartment on fire, stabbed himself and jumped out of a window while partly covered in flames.

Torres faces a maximum sentence of 34 years to life in state prison if convicted. His bail has been set at more than $2 million.
