A Florida man is accused of fatally stabbing his girlfriend and having a “strange conversation” with her father on FaceTime during the murder.
30-year-old DeAngelo Clark is accused of stabbing 20-year-old Kiara Alleyne to death and calling her father over FaceTime as she lay dying on the floor, according to reports. Deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office received a call from the victim’s family due to their concern about her wellbeing. Police arrived at an address in Anthony, FL on September 11 and found her lifeless body.
According to court documents, while Clark was stabbing his victim he and Alleyne’s father had a “strange conversation” over FaceTime, reports WESH. During the call, Clark claimed Alleyne had a knife.
The father claims his daughter called back and said “I don’t. He has the knife,” before the call ended.
The father said he saw his daughter lying in a pool of blood on the ground. He also claims Clark asked for advice about what he should do next after killing his girlfriend. The father then called the police after speaking to Clark, but the suspect had already fled the scene by the time authorities arrived.
Clark left with Alleyne’s 1-year-old baby and triggered an amber alert in the county. However, the alert was later canceled after Clark gave the child over to one of Alleyne’s family members. Cops claim Clark also tried to set fire to the home the murder took place before he fled the scene. Police discovered a cloth hanging out the bottom of the oven and there was a strong smell of lighter fluid in the building, WFTV reports.
After dropping the 1-year-old off with the family member, Clark broke into another Florida home and stole items before also attempting to set that home on fire. He suffered severe burns after trying to set himself on fire while sitting inside his car. He was taken to a hospital in Miami where is being treated for his wounds.
“Right now, we are evaluating his condition medically, or detectives are on scene with him in Monroe County and as soon as he is able to transported back to Marion, we will bring him here to face charges,” said Cecelia Koon, of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
After committing the crimes, Clark posted a message on Facebook saying he was going to take his own life and apologizing to the victim’s family, Miami Herald reports.
