Murder charge: Mpls. father punched his 4-month-old girl 22 times in head, chest
As he had done often in the past, Cory Morris cared for his 4-month-old daughter, Emersyn Morris, when the baby’s mother left for work Saturday morning.
But throughout the day, he did not respond to text messages from Jenny Andersen, his girlfriend and Emersyn’s mother. At 4:45 p.m., they finally connected by phone.
He was going to jail, he told her, because he had done something to their baby.
