Dad doused his three-year-old daughter in petrol and burned her ‘because she was too beautiful’

A dad-of-three who doused his daughter in petrol and then set fire to her says he did it because his daughter ‘was too beautiful’, a court has heard. Edward Herbert, 43, is accused of pouring petrol over his three-year-old in front of his partner after a day of drinking and smoking cannabis at their home in Perth, Australia. He then set the girl on fire and poured petrol over his seven-year-old daughter. His younger daughter was left with burns to her face and upper body and required surgery and laser scar management.

The court heard how around midnight, Herbert told his wife ‘the werewolf is coming at 12pm’ and ‘that’s it b****, I am going to kill you’ to his daughter before getting petrol and entering her room. He then poured petrol over the young child and set her alight before dousing the older child in petrol.

According to reports, the family’s neighbour Daniel McMillan arrived shortly after and found Mr Herbert in the kitchen drinking beer. Herbert then allegedly told Mr McMillan that they were his kids so he could do whatever he wanted and that his young daughter was too beautiful and that is why he burnt her.

He is accused of two counts of doing an act with intent to unlawfully kill, threatening to kill his partner, being armed with a knife in circumstances likely to cause fear and doing an act likely to endanger life with intent to harm.

Herbert admits burning his child but claims he was insane at the time and so not guilty.
The trial continues.
