A 21-year-old Minneapolis father who killed his four-month-old daughter by punching her 22 times because she was making baby noises has been sent to prison.

Cory Morris was arrested last August after he called 911 after admitting to his daughter Emersyn Morris’ mother and grandmother what he had done, reported Daily Mail.

When police and paramedics arrived on the scene at Morris’ Franklin Avenue home, they found the young father with blood on his hands and bloodstains on his shirt.

Monday, a judge sentenced him to 25 years in prison after he had tried to claim he was not responsible for her death because he ‘didn’t know what he was doing’.
