Thomas McClellan, 25, of Holt, Michigan, kills his stepdaughter, because she was hungry and it wasn’t dinner time yet. He then sets her body on fire to destroy the evidence??

Most women out there would not have a boyfriend or a husband if the guy had his own place to live.

McClellan, a 25-year-old Holt resident, then described in bits and pieces what happened.

The girl entered his room to say she was hungry, McClellan said.  He tried to shoo her out of the room. But Luna instead plopped down on the floor, he said. McClellan pushed her a little, nudging her toward the door, but Luna resisted.  “It tipped me over the edge,” McClellan said. “She gave me more attitude.”  He grabbed the kindergartner by the shoulder and pulled her onto the floor of his bedroom. Then he sat atop her torso and used a pocket knife to stab her in the chest numerous times.

“What’d she do when you stabbed her,” the detective asked.  “She cried, and she coughed,” McClellan responded. “Not very long.”

McClellan later covered Luna’s body with blankets and set them on fire, prosecutors said, in an attempt to destroy the evidence of his crime.

I wonder if he thought if he burned the body, nobody would notice the child was missing?
