Dr. Melvin L. Morse, 58, and his wife, Pauline, 40, of Georgetown, Del., were each charged with four felony counts of first-degree reckless endangering, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and felony conspiracy, said state police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier. Their children, girls ages 5 and 11, are in the care of the state Division of Family Services, state police said. The investigation started July 12 when state troopers received a 911 call from a neighbor about a domestic dispute at the couple’s home. The Morses’ daughter went to the neighbor after Melvin Morse reportedly grabbed her by the ankle and dragged her across a gravel driveway, Fournier said. According to court documents, the 11-year-old told detectives and social workers that between May 2009 and May 2011 her father had disciplined her by what he called “waterboarding” — holding the daughter’s face under running water, causing the water to fill her nostrils and over her face.
