WESTMINSTER, CO – The last picture taken of 19-month-old Mia McKoy was posted to Facebook just before her father allegedly shot and killed her.

Westminster, Colorado Police say Merrick McKoy, 22, then turned the gun on himself.

Dispatchers got the 911 call from McKoy’s ex-girlfriend. She had reportedly fled the Denver suburb apartment and left the child behind.

In addition to the picture, McKoy reportedly posted status updates hinting at his intentions.

One read: “Don’t judge me had no choice”.

McKoy may soon have his judgement day in court. He survived the attempted suicide.

Now he’ll have to survive the guilt of taking his little girl’s life.

    There’s always a choice whether good or bad he had the final say on his decision that day. People are always pointing the finger at someone else. Other people may have had a part in the situation but at the end of the day we have the final say on our personal lives. All situation aren’t the same. When you as an individual absolutely have the final saying in the matter. Man up or woman up and deal with the outcome of those decisions we all make and allow. I’m not talking about those cases where you’re a victim of drunk driving or robbery or any unforseen occurences. It may not be easy sometimes just let the innocent people go. Too many people get caught up in our bad decision.
