MONTREAL — A 13-year-old girl whose beating death led to the arrest of her 71-year-old father had enraged him by refusing to say her prayers, according to neighbours.
Noutene Sidime died Saturday evening in suburban Longueuil, Que., three days after she was rushed to hospital unconscious and bleeding from her nose.
Her father, Moussa Sidime, had called 911 last Wednesday. Sidime was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, but the charges could be upgraded, police said.
There were tears and tributes at Sidime’s high school Tuesday as students returning from the long weekend gathered by the hundreds in the schoolyard. They released balloons and remembered a happy girl who was once honoured as the coolest student in her class.
