Dad violently assaults Mom in front of terrified 6-year-old daughter (Louisville, Kentucky)

Fathers rights folks and their loyal stooges would be quick to argue--and probably are somewhere--that this vicious piece of crap might still be a "good dad"--'cause, you know, he didn't actually beat up the daughter. Terrorizing doesn't count or even register with these nitwits.

Dad is identified as CHARLES ROBERT BYRD. Why was this lowlife let out of prison anyway?

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A convicted sex offender released from prison in January is facing several new charges after police say he told the mother of his child he was going to "watch her take her last breath."

According to an arrest warrant, it happened July 30 in the 5000 block of Stephen Drive. That's where police say 32-year-old Charles Robert Byrd grabbed the victim -- the mother of their 6-year-old daughter -- in a choke hold. Police say Byrd told her he "hoped she already said goodbye to their daughter," because he was going to "take her life" since she was taking away his freedom by calling the police.

According to the arrest warrant, Byrd continued to choke the victim until she passed out; when she awoke, she couldn't immediately get up because" her feet (were) numbed and purple in color. When she tried to call police, Byrd allegedly threw the phone across the room. As the victim tried to leave, police say, Byrd admitted to their daughter that he had choked and beaten her mother.

The "child was terrified," police say, but the victim managed to escape with her daughter and call police.

Police say the victim's voice was hoarse, and that she suffered serious injuries, including burst capillaries around her eyes, numerous scratches, and a knot on the right side of her head.

According to court records, Byrd is a convicted sex offender. He was released on parole in January. According to court documents, Byrd is also accused of abusing the victim's two dogs on a daily basis in an "extremely violent" manner.

Byrd was arrested Aug. 6. He is charged with assault, terroristic threatening and wanton endangerment.
