ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A 2-year-old is in critical condition after police say her Albuquerque father slashed her throat.
Police said 26-year-old Chee Livingston stabbed the young girl and the girl's mother, Blanche Johnson, who tried to stop him early Monday.
Police said an 8-year-old girl in the apartment called police.
The toddler and her mother were taken to University of New Mexico Hospital. Police said both were expected to survive.
Livingston was treated for what appeared to be self-inflicted injuries then booked into jail on child abuse and attempted murder charges.
