SWNS: South West News Service Mylee was only eight years old when she was stabbed by her father. Press Association Images Mylee was portrayed on CCTV several hours before she was fatally attacked by her father. Press Association Images Mylee was seen in a Costcutter store with her father about two hours before she was stabbed to death. On the night of the cruel murder he was found by the police with a "superficial" injury in his bungalow in the small West Midlands town of Brownhills, near Walsall in January.
The police described how the father "directed his anger" at Mylee to cheat Ms. Taundry after starting a same-sex relationship.
But when emergency services rush to save the schoolgirl's life, Billingham refuses to help – or even to name her.
Instead, he simply told officers "COPD" – regarding a lung condition he was suffering.
Slamming Billingham, Det Insp Jim Colclough said: "It shows how selfish he is, his daughter fought for her life and the only thing that occupied him was herself."
He added: "It is the most selfish act you can think of, it is the biggest breach of trust you can imagine as a father."
Earlier, Birmingham Crown Court heard how Billingham had threatened to kill ex Ex Taundry when she saw a kitchen knife fall on his feet on January 20th.
But as she tried desperately to seize the weapon, she slipped and the father grabbed Mylee and pulled her home.
