He is a coward. My prayers are with the family but mainly Amber, poor little girl. This was a unforgivable selfish act. Such a sad story.

My heart goes out to all involved, but mostly to their child. May God be with everyone who is suffering through this tragedy. I just hope and pray that this child has a lot of love to surround her, she is going to need it. This man has done a very selfish act and I when he gets to his judgement place may he get no mercy...how could he take both parents away from his child? what a sick human being

I knew Derick and he was a good guy and awesome father. You don't know what all was going on with this family. I don't agree with what he did but, I wasn't put on this earth to judge anyone either. Holly I have seen you post the same thing on each website that has something about this story. I understand that you are "family" but, if I was your family I would be embarrassed with your comments. Hasn't your family been through enough without statements like that from you?

I feel so sory for this poor child. I hope she didn't have to witness this. From past experience this is hard on an adult much less a child.I hope she is surrounded by love,conpassion and family. I still think something clicks in the brain to do something like this.

This is the 2nd time this has happened that I am aware of within the past week. On Friday Dec 4th, Allison Holt Gaither was stabbed to death by her estranged husband then he hung himself. She had just taken out a 50-b on him. Come on LAW ENFORCEMENT!!!!!!!! Isn't there something that can be done to help????? Allison had 3 kids and a child was involved in this situation as well. This is saying a lot. We as a society need to step up and insist that something be done. As I see it a 50-B is only worth the paper it is printed on. All this Domestic Violence has got to stop!!

Shs1991 I agree with Holly. Killing your wife automatically makes you a bad guy and a bad father.
