A father has been accused of abandoning his daughter in a field.
It came a few weeks after he tried to burn her to death.
He allegedly tried to kill her twice as he really wanted a son.
The girl’s mother called authorities when she realised she had gone missing.
Ever since she realised her baby was a girl her partner said, “do whatever she wanted with the baby but to keep it away from him”.
The man is now being held in custody.
