Father Accused of Killing Daughter Dies in Hospital

CORPUS CHRISTI - The father accused of stabbing to death his daughter before setting himself on fire has died in a San Antonio hospital.

Mulugeta Tirfe, 57, suffered burns to the majority of his body when his Nissan went up in flames outside the Walmart on Greenwood Drive.

Roughly and hour beforehand, police found his daughter, Danait Kidane, 23, at a home in Flour Bluff with life threatening wounds. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police say Tirfe is the only suspect in the daughter's murder. Investigators are releasing no information on a possible motive.

Kidane's on-and-off again boyfriend tells us her father was a strict Christian man, but he wouldn't speculate on what happened.
