SHOCK: Pediatrician Melvin Morse and wife Pauline Morse were arrested Wednesday in Delaware after police learned they were using a form of torture — waterboarding — to discipline their 11 year old daughter. Melvin and Pauline Morse were charged with four felony counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
According to Delaware State Police, the couple’s 11-year-old daughter was taken to a Child Advocacy Center on Aug. 6 for an interview about an alleged previous assault by her father.
During the course of the interview, the girl said her father had punished her by what he called “waterboarding.” On several occasions beginning in 2009, she said, Melvin Morse held her face under a running faucet, causing water to flood up her nose and run over her face, police said. The girl’s mother witnessed several of the incidents and failed to stop them, police said. Source
