A father murdered his disabled 21-year-old daughter by starving her to death, police said.
Richard Comer, 46, was arrested on Friday and charged with killing his daughter, Vanessa Comer, who died of severe malnutrition and dehydration in July 2018.
Police in Phoenix, Arizona said Vanessa was diagnosed with a serious medical condition and was completely dependent on Richard for total care, nutrition and transportation for her doctor visits.
According to investigators, Richard allegedly failed to provide any care for his daughter for up to three months before he took her to a hospital upon finding her unresponsive.
She died at the hospital on the same day that she was taken in by her father.
Police searched the Richard Comers home and also discovered two dogs that were dehydrated and starving.
