The suspect identified as Joi, slit her throat on Sunday morning, April 9th, and then locked her in a rented house in Phetchaburi's Muang district.
He was arrested at a checkpoint in Prachuap Khiri Khan's Thap Sakae district on Sunday night while trying to flee with his youngest daughter.
Joi told police he attacked the girl out of rage after they argued about her spending too much time on Facebook and Line.
The wife said her husband had a violent temper and had hit the girl before over her social media use. She claimed Joi had previously threatened to kill all the family members as he was jealous and paranoid that she would return to her former lover.
She said her daughter is recovering in hospital under close medical supervision.
Police said the husband was wanted under a court-issued arrest warrant in relation to a murder case in Trang's Muang district on August 14, 2007.
