TORONTO — Police say a man accused of killing his 11-year-old daughter has died in hospital.

Peel regional police say Roopesh Rajkumar died on Wednesday after spending days in hospital with what they described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

His daughter, Riya Rajkumar, became the subject of an Amber Alert late Thursday night.

Shortly after the alert was sent out, police found her body inside her father’s home in Brampton, Ont.

Rajkumar was charged with first-degree murder in Riya’s death.

The day Riya died — Valentine’s Day — was also her and her mother’s birthdays.
