A Los Angeles man was charged Thursday with the stabbing death of a 3-year-old girl randomly attacked just steps from her parents at their workplace.

Ricardo Utuy, 34, was charged with murder in the girl's death and attempted murder a separate attack on a woman in March.

Utuy's arraignment was set for later Thursday. It's unclear if he has an attorney.

The 3-year-old girl, whom police called "Baby Ruby," was with her parents Monday at the clothing factory where they and Utuy work when she left her mother's side to give her father a cookie.
