The father of a 3-year-old Mississippi girl has been charged with capital murder in her death.

Media reports say Bailey Salovich died on Saturday after being flown to a hospital in Jackson.

Police say that Joshua A. Salovich, 25 beat Bailey with a bamboo rod, a cellphone cord and his hands because she would not answer math questions and soiled herself.

Salovich reportedly told police the reason he hit the girl when she would not answer math questions was because “The streets are hard… for her to survive she has to be hard, too.”

The cause of death has not been determined but the local hospital that treated Bailey told police the toddler suffered brain bleeding, a possibly detached retina and her lungs were filled with blood.

“He said he would pop her with his hands on her butt and legs when she got a wrong answer… (he said he) backhanded her several times in the stomach because she kept getting it wrong,” said police.
