Last week, a Texas father of six was viciously murdered during his daughter’s high school graduation celebration.

According to ABC13, Adam Tobias, 35, was fatally shot on the front steps of a residence on Santa Cecilia Lane in Houston at 4:15 a.m. Friday.

His daughter Destiny, who referred to her father as her “best friend,” “held her dad’s lifeless body in her arms,” according to Tobias’ distraught wife, Neftaly Perez.

Philip Arning, 24, is the estranged boyfriend of Tobias’ former partner, Destiny’s mother, who was graduating.

Arning allegedly began arguing about Tobias’ presence at the party, which was held at the former partner’s home.

But “[Arning] shouldn’t have even been at the house,” Destiny said of the suspect, who was released on bond and is due to appear in court Tuesday.

“He wasn’t supposed to be at my house, and now he’s walking free, and my dad’s gone forever. And he’s walking like nothing ever happened,” Destiny said of Arning.

Perez said Destiny is traumatized by the tragedy.

“I’m sure she’s never going to get that out of her head,” she lamented.

Perez is Destiny’s stepmother and had been married to Tobias for 16 years.

She and the couple’s five young sons were not present at the time of the shooting.

“I’m not going to be able to see my best friend, my only friend. I’m not going to hear his voice. I’m not going to get his kisses,” the grieving widow said.

“He was always there for his kids. No matter what.”

“[He said], ‘I want to enjoy every moment with you. You deserve this party, and I’m so proud of you,’ ” she recalled.

Perez said Arning “cold-blooded shot” her husband.

“‘Cause he didn’t even see it coming,” she said.

“I hope it eats you alive what you’ve done, what you’ve taken from us, from our family,” she said, addressing Arning.
