Brother reports alleged abuse of sister

A young girl was hit so hard she eventually vomited, her brother told police as he recounted what his sister experienced at the hands of their mother.

The boy told police his sister woke up their mom, 26-year-old Morgan A. Miller, after a July trip to lakes in the region, and that’s when Miller hit the girl, according to the probable cause affidavit filed Wednesday.

He told police Miller hit his sister hard enough she was screaming and eventually became ill, the report said. The girl was reluctant to talk to police and would only say she got hit because “I was bad,” according to the affidavit.

The girl’s father noticed the injuries when a family member picked up the child from Miller’s house, the report said. Police said there was a large reddened area on the girl’s left cheek in the shape of a hand. Miller told police she intended to hit the girl in the mouth because she was throwing a fit and yelling but the girl turned her head and got hit in the cheek instead, the report said.
