NORTH LAS VEGAS -- A father expressed heartache over the death last week of an infant who was one of nine children who lived with the man's daughter, Geneva Morgan.
Prior to the child's death, Morgan was arrested at her North Las Vegas apartment in December. On Wednesday she plead guilty to a child abuse and neglect charge related to that arrest.
Wallace Morgan, her father, wouldn't go on camera but told 8 News NOW Thursday he spoke with her while she was behind bars.
He said she reached out to him in the past month for money to help her get out of jail but he couldn't comply because of his fixed income.
Geneva Morgan was adopted at age 5, left home as a teenager, used drugs and had run-ins with police, her father said. He said she eventually had 10 children of her own.
