Delaware Pediatrician, Melvin Morse, Charged With Waterboarding Young Daughter
Melvin and Pauline Morse, were arrested for endangering the welfare of their child.
From Oprah and Larry King, to perhaps a courtroom near you. How to explain the case of Delaware pediatrician Melvin Morse, assuming the daughter's story is accurate? The Mother was also arrested, for allegedly allowing the abuse.
A Delaware pediatrician who writes about near-death experiences of children and has appeared on "Oprah" is accused of waterboarding his 11-year-old daughter for two years, according to Delaware State Police.
Dr. Melvin Morse, 58, and his wife Pauline, 40, were arrested Tuesday, a day after their daughter told a child advocate that her father had "waterboarded" her four times between May 2009 and May 2011 while her mother watched and did nothing to stop the abuse, Cpl. Gary Fournier told ABC News.
