Minneapolis, Minnesota: A 21-year-old man from Minneapolis has been arrested on charges of murdering his four-month-old daughter by punching on her chest with a closed fist because she made 'baby noises'.

Identified as Cory Morris, the accused was arrested after he made a 911 call and confessed to his crime.

 

According to a report in the Daily Mail, when police officials and paramedics arrived at the crime scene, they were shocked to find the accused with blood on his hand. Medics also found blood stains on his clothes, wall and on the floor.

The infant was found lying lifeless on the changing table in the bedroom. Without wasting a second, paramedics performed CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) on the newborn. However, when she failed to respond, they rushed her to Hennepin County Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. In their report, doctors said that the victim was killed due to blunt force trauma.
