There's a SHOKING CRIME being reported out of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. A man is being charged of killing his "daughter," after he learns that she's not biologically his.
Chris Marquis McMorris, 24, was charged with two counts of second-degree murder without intent.
According to the complaint, Chris' girlfriend got blood test results showing that Chris was not the biological father of a baby he believed to be his.
After the test, people close to the child began noticing mysterious bruises.
Here is how its being reported on local CBS news website:
The complaint states he was watching the baby on March 24 after the girl’s mother left for work. The three days prior, McMorris dropped the child off at daycare. On March 21, daycare staff noticed the girl had two burst blood vessels in her eye. The next day, the baby had scratches and bruising on her right cheek. McMorris said it happened at their home and didn’t give any more detail. She had bruising on her back the following day. Daycare staff documented the injuries and reported them to Hennepin County Child Protection.
McMorris didn’t bring the girl to daycare on March 24, the complaint states. The girl’s mother told authorities the child had been suffering from a cold but was otherwise healthy. The mother could not explain the bruising or lacerations. She said she dressed and changed the baby early on the morning of March 24, and didn’t notice anything abnormal about the baby’s behavior.
The complaint states McMorris called 911 at about 9:14 a.m. on March 24 and said the baby wasn’t breathing. When officers arrived, the baby was lying on the ground and McMorris provided inconsistent accounts of when the baby was first not breathing and what she was wearing. He said the baby became unresponsive, stopped breathing and started vomiting a white substance. He had no explanation.
