A Minneapolis man is charged with murder in the death of his 4-month-old daughter.
Police say Cory Morris was at home alone with his daughter Emersyn a week ago when he called 911 saying he had killed his daughter. She was rushed to the hospital but died from blunt force trauma.
"For reasons we cannot explain, he became irritated when his 4-month-old daughter was talking 'baby talk' and interrupting him. He put her on the changing table to try to get her to stop making noise. When she didn't, [he] struck [her], according to his own account, perhaps 15 times," said Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman.
