The 3-year-old daughter of the Raleigh man charged with trying to drown his children in a Durham pond died Wednesday, police said.
The girl’s 5-year-old sister was released from the hospital Tuesday, said Durham Police Department spokeswoman Kammie Michael.
Police say Alan Lassiter threw his daughters into a pond at Audubon Lake apartments, near Interstate 40 north of The Streets at Southpoint, around 9 p.m. Sunday. Lassiter’s 7-year-old son got away, police said.
Lassiter, 29, was charged with three counts of attempted murder and remains in jail on $2 million bail. Michael did not say Wednesday if one of the charges against him would be upgraded to murder.

“The investigation is ongoing at this time,” she said.
The 3-year-old girl had been listed in critical condition since she was taken to the hospital Sunday.
