A Connecticut man has been charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of his 1-year-old niece while babysitting.

Authorities responded to a home in Bristol shortly before 7:30 p.m. Monday and encountered a resident running toward them carrying a child with a severe laceration to her stomach. Officers performed CPR on the girl, who later died at a hospital.

Police say the girl was Zaniyah Calloway. An 11-year-old child also was in the home but wasn't injured.

The girl's uncle, 36-year-old Arthur Hapgood, of Waterbury, is being held on $1.5 million bail on charges including murder, reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a child. He's expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Bristol Superior Court. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.

The motive for the slashing isn't clear.

We are seeing so many of these crimes on children, its heartbreaking. I read a story last night about a child who had his eyes bitten out by his father. Not even animals act like this.

OMG!

Have to wonder, is it because we have a 24 hour news, instant info society.  Or are these incidents increasing?
