While her mother was gambling inside a Nevada casino, a three-year-old girl was stabbed to death by a 19-year-old man inside her family's trailer at the CasaBlanca casino recreational vehicle resort near Las Vegas.

The girls' mother and her boyfriend had been confronted inside the casino by a man who demanded they pay him $125, said Lt. Jerry Hafen, a Nevada Department of Public Safety spokesman. Authorities believe the money had been stolen from the man to repay a debt to the couple.

The mother and her boyfriend were still inside the casino when the girls were attacked shortly before 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning inside the family's trailer at a casino RV park, Hafen said.
