MERIDIAN, MS – A man admitted he beat his 3-year-old daughter to death because she failed a math lesson and soiled her pants.

On Friday, police were called by a local hospital to report the suspicious injuries found on a 3-year-old girl in their care.

Bailey Salovich had a swollen abdomen, bruises and lacerations on her legs and buttocks as well as a head wound.

Despite efforts to save her, the toddler would die from her injuries the following day. An official cause of death has not been released, but local police were told by the hospital that the girl had also suffered a brain bleed, a possible detached retina and that her lungs were filled with blood.

When police interviewed the girl’s father, 25-year-old Joshua Salovich, he admitted that “it was all his fault.” According to Salovich, he had been teaching the girl numbers when he got angry at the toddler.

“She apparently did not want to participate and get the correct numbers,” Meridian Police Detective Kevin Boyd said. “He said he would pop her with his hands on her butt and legs when she got a wrong answer… (he said he) backhanded her several times in the stomach because she kept getting it wrong.”

After the girl soiled herself, Salovich removed her clothes and began beating her with a bamboo rod until it broke. He then beat the girl with a heavy-duty phone charging cord and his hand. When police asked Salovich how hard he hit the girl on a 1-to-10 scale, he answered “10.”

When asked why he would dole out such a severe punishment for the girl having problems learning her numbers, Salovich explained that “the streets are hard,” so she also had to be hard in order to survive.

Salovich was arrested and has been charged with capital murder. No charges have been filed against the girl’s mother, who was in a different room at the time of the beating, but police say they are still investigating.
