Should This Man Receive The Death Penalty? (Photos)

Something in 21-year-old Cory Morris’ life made him so depraved that he allegedly punched his own baby in the face, killing the child. His family members are reportedly chalking it up to mental health issues, according to CBS News.

Morris was charged with second-degree murder after repeatedly punching his 4-month-old daughter in the face. Morris reportedly called the baby’s mother to tell her that their daughter was dead.

When police arrived they found his hands and shirt covered with blood and the baby dead inside his duplex. Morris confessed to the killing. The baby was reportedly making noises so he punched her "to quiet her."

"I lost the sweetest little girl the world has ever known," the girl’s mother wrote on Facebook.

Morris’ mother reportedly told the news that her son suffered from depression but that the family wasn’t concerned that he was violent.

"This poor baby, just four months old, died at the hands of her father, who has admitted to punching her 15 times with a closed fist and hitting her seven times in the chest. As a father and grandfather, such brutal actions are difficult for me to comprehend," Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told the station. "Family members have suggested there may be mental health issues here. These will need to be evaluated during the course of this case."
