MILWAUKEE A Milwaukee man was charged Tuesday with fatally stabbing his infant daughter and another man after flying into a rage when his ex-girlfriend refused to take him back, prosecutors say.

Ruben Garcia, 20, was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the deaths of his daughter, 5-month-old Kairii Dailey, and 39-year-old Paul Kucharczyk.

Garcia also faces two counts of attempted homicide in the stabbings of 19-year-old Alexia Dailey the baby's mother and Garcia's ex-girlfriend and Dailey's current boyfriend, 22-year-old Christopher Hamilton.

Dailey called police about 8:30 a.m. Friday during the attack, police said. When officers arrived, they found the baby dead in her crib and three other stabbing victims, the Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1yLIH89 ) reported.

Prosecutors said Garcia kissed his baby daughter, apologized to her and then slit her throat.

Online court records do not list a defense attorney. Garcia remained in jail Tuesday, according to online records.

According to the criminal complaint, Dailey told police she and Garcia broke up earlier this month because he was physically abusive, but Garcia was allowed to see their daughter, who was born in August.

Garcia called and texted Dailey several times Thursday night and into Friday morning, upset over an online video of the woman's new boyfriend, Hamilton, playing with Kairii. He asked to see his daughter and came to the house Friday morning and asked Dailey to take him back.

Dailey refused and asked him to leave. Instead, Garcia lunged at her with a knife and stabbed her multiple times, the complaint said.

Hamilton heard the commotion coming from the kitchen and tried to stop Garcia, who then began stabbing him, according to the complaint. Hamilton told police he heard Garcia say, "You ruined my life."

The two struggled and Hamilton grabbed a knife to defend himself, but the complaint says Garcia stabbed him several more times, so he pretended to be dead to stop the attack.

Kucharczyk, a family friend, also came to help and tried to stop Garcia, but was fatally stabbed in the neck.

Dailey was able to lock herself in a bathroom and call police.
