Mylee Billingham was named by West Midlands Police on Sunday after she was stabbed to death on Saturday night in Brownhills, Walsall.
8 year old Mylee was taken to hospital where she later died after being found critically wounded in Valley Views. Emergency services arrived at the street at 9:15pm on Saturday.
Bill Billingham, 54, Mylee’s father, was found with stab injuries at the bungalow and is currently in hospital.
Det Insp Jim Colclough said this was a “domestic incident” ad that no-one else was being sought in connection with the death.
Neighbour Graham Greatrex, 74, helped the mother after she said a man had “stabbed my little girl”. “It was a bit of a shock. You can’t imagine it happening on our doorstep, especially when it’s a little girl.” he added.
On Sunday, the bungalow was searched by forensic experts and the investigation is still ongoing.
