Investigators in Los Angeles are saying a man purposely crashed his Cadillac Escalade six feet into a Boyle Heights house on Sunday evening killing his infant daughter and the 19-year-old mother.

A custody fight may have been the motive according to the victim's uncle, Eduardo Bonilla, who identified his niece as 19-year-old Trudy Bonilla, her daughter as Naomi Bonilla and the driver as Victor.
