LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The man accused by police of killing his infant daughter failed to show up to his first court appearance again Tuesday morning.

Clarence Martin Jr. is currently in the Clark County Detention Center's psychiatric ward, according to his legal representation.


Instead, an attorney appeared on his behalf and a preliminary hearing was set for Nov. 10. Bail was not discussed.

On Saturday, Las Vegas police say Martin threw the baby girl off an apartment balcony near St. Rose Parkway and Eastern Avenue.

Officers say he then set the apartment on fire, drove away and got into two separate car crashes.

Martin is facing several charges.
