Ohio father accused of stabbing infant to death

CAMPBELL, Ohio — A man is being held in jail on a charge of murder after police say he stabbed his 1-year-old daughter to death, telling authorities he blacked out because he had not taken his medication.

Bond has been set at $500,000 for Marc Anthony Flora, 29, according to the Youngstown Vindicator.

Police say Flora called officers from his home at about 7:50 a.m. Friday and told them he was “covered in blood” and needed rescuers to come to his house.

“I need someone to come ... I just blacked out and she’s dead,” Flora says in the call, according to the Vindicator.

Police say the child, Jane Flora, was stabbed in the neck.

Another 2-year-old child in the home at the time was not harmed, WFMJ Channel 21 reports. The mother of the children was at work at the time of the incident.

According to WFMJ, Flora tells police he is bi-polar and has not been taking his medication. No drugs were found in the home, reports say.
