GEORGETOWN, Delaware (Reuters) - A jury heard final arguments on Wednesday in the trial of a well-known Delaware pediatrician accused of waterboarding his 11-year-old stepdaughter.
Prosecutors sought to portray Dr. Melvin Morse, a best-selling author on near-death experiences, as a controlling manipulator. Morse's lawyer told jurors, who are scheduled to begin deliberations on Thursday, that his stepdaughter and wife were liars.
