An 18-year-old girl from Indiana has been charged with bludgeoning and stabbing her father to death during an argument over what police described as ‘life issues.’

According to the victim’s ex-wife, Donald Stokes would routinely fat-shame their teenage daughter, Ameera Stokes, whom she described as suicidal and suffering from depression.

The fatal incident took place in Mount Morris Township, Machina, where Ameera had arrived recently to stay with her father after her latest failed suicide attempt.

At around 5.30am on Sunday, the local police department got a 911 call from Ameera, who told a dispatcher that her father was dead.

Officers who responded to the victim’s home in the 1000 block of Wet Genesee Street discovered the 53-year-old man’s bloodied and battered body lying in the stairwell leading to the basement.
