Doctors in Texas, found that the girl had injuries to her head, eyes and face after her father beat her for interrupting his computer game.

31-year-old Anthony Michael Sanders was charged with capital murder over the death of his 2-year-old daughter Ellie Sanders.

According to police, Sanders had been babysitting his two children from 10:00 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. When his wife finally came home, their 6-year-old son went to the room to wake up his little sister.

When she did not wake up, her parents called 911. Ellie was taken to the North Hills Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Doctors called police after seeing fresh bruises to the child’s head, face, around her eyes, blood behind her ear and two adult bite marks on her back, according to the affidavit.

Detectives believe that Sanders, who loves to play video games, got angry when his young daughter interrupted him while playing.

He held the child down and beat her, causing her to die.

In 2011, Sanders was arrested for choking the girl’s mother, who later married him, but the charges were later dropped.
