According to Agence France-Presse, the 24-year-old man pleaded guilty in 2010 in a Melbourne court for murdering his daughter last November as "pay [back]" against the girl's mother, Rachelle D'Argent.

Court documents obtained by the new agency Wednesday state that Acar picked up Yazmina at D'Argent's home and told the mother he was taking the girl to a local candy shop.

He then stabbed the girl in the stomach and chest and left her in a wooded area to die.

Later that day, Acar contacted D'Argent by text message, asking whether he should kill Yazmina by car crash or stab her.

"How does it feel to not have your child when I did not have mine for three months?" Acar told her according to Australian news wire AAP.

AFP reports that Acar is scheduled to face the Victorian Supreme Court later this month for further hearings. He is currently in custody.

Acar reportedly told investigators that after killing his daughter he wanted to commit suicide but said he "did not have the balls."
