GILBERT, Ariz. - A 4-year-old girl is currently receiving “emergency and life-saving” care at a hospital after she was allegedly hit by a babysitter after spilling milk near his Xbox.
According to court paperwork, Gilbert police responded to a 911 call from the girl’s mom at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday. She said her daughter was unresponsive and not breathing.
Court documents show the girl has severe brain hemorrhaging along with bruising around her face and injuries to her back, hips and vaginal area.
Major Murry, 24, who according to court documents, often babysits the 4-year-old girl, told police he became angry over the spilled milk. He was watching her at her home in Tempe.
Court paperwork also shows he told police he struck the girl in her back causing her to fall and hit her head.
Documents show he then brought the girl back to his home in Gilbert where he put her down for a nap. He later realized she was unresponsive. He proceeded to give her a bath. He says he hit her multiple times and shoved his finger down her throat in an effort to wake her up.
Police arrived when the girl's mother got to the scene.
Murry denied responsibility for the additional injuries found on the girl’s body. He was arrested child abuse. He was held on a $150,000 cash-only bond.
