Hereford, Texas - A Hereford man is on trial for capital murder this week for allegedly killing his girlfriend's 17 month old child.

Daniel Perez is accused of pulling a shirt over the girl's head, which caused her to fall from the top of a dresser.

Police say Perez then tried to kill himself.

The Deaf Smith County District Attorney says the defense took over testimony this afternoon and that the trial may wrap up as soon as tomorrow.

The county is not seeking the death penalty against Perez.
