Cory MorrisMINNEAPOLIS, MN – Police have charged 21-year-old Cory Morris with murder after he killed his baby by punching her in the face with a closed fist over a dozen times.

On Saturday, Morris was babysitting 4-month-old Emersyn Morris while his girlfriend, Jenny Anderson, was at work.

Anderson tried to contact Morris multiple times throughout the day but no one would hear from Morris until almost 5 pm when he called Anderson and his mother.

Morris told them both that he was going to jail because he had done something to the baby. They both told him to call 911.

When paramedics arrived at the home, Emersyn was unconscious and Morris was covered in blood and had a swollen hand. Emersyn was rushed to the hospital where she died from blunt force trauma.

Morris told police that he had been watching television when his daughter started making noises. He said he took the girl out of her swing, carried her into her bedroom and placed her on a changing table.

When Emersyn continued making noises, he attempted to quiet her by punching her approximately 15 times in the face and 7 times in the chest with a closed fist.  Morris expressed no remorse and said he was schizophrenic and heard voices.

Morris has been charged with second-degree intentional murder and is currently in the Hennepin County Jail, with bail set at $2 million.

His family says that he has mental issues and they’ve tried to get him psychological help for the past year. However, he has never shown violent tendencies towards anyone.

“We never thought he would hurt the baby. We would never allow him to be with the baby if that was the case,” Ginny Morris said. “We were worried he was going to hurt himself, not the baby.”
