Indiana Husband Slit His Wife’s Throat and then Shot Her Multiple Times after Recent Birth of Daughter: Confessed Brutal Crime

An Indiana man has been taken into custody and is facing charges following allegations that he was involved in the tragic death of his wife. This incident occurred approximately one month after the birth of their baby, according to relatives.

A 25-year-old man named Robert Cooley was taken into custody on June 1 following a report of a shooting inside a residence in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Police Department shared this information in a Facebook post.

Upon their arrival at approximately 7:20 a.m., law enforcement discovered the lifeless body of a woman, who had tragically succumbed to what appeared to be gunshot wounds. Authorities also mentioned the recovery of a firearm inside the residence and promptly apprehended Cooley.

Although the police did not disclose the victim’s identity in the post, a probable cause affidavit obtained by WXIN reveals that she is Cooley’s wife, 26-year-old Amber Morgan. The affidavit states that Morgan endured a brutal assault, with injuries including severe beatings, a cut-throat, and possible gunshot wounds.

During police questioning, Cooley reportedly admitted to the authorities that he was responsible for his wife’s death and acknowledged his actions as being wrongful. According to the affidavit cited by WXIN, the individual expressed the need to go to jail. According to the affidavit, he reportedly confessed to the authorities that he physically assaulted and shot Morgan.

As reported by WXIN, Morgan’s mother revealed that her daughter recently became a mother to a baby girl and had reached out to her for assistance with a divorce just one day before her tragic demise.

“She reached out to me via email, requesting assistance in preparing the necessary paperwork for a petition for dissolution of marriage,” Starla Hart shared with the outlet.

According to authorities, the Indiana Department of Child Services was called to the scene following the incident. The final charges against Cooley will be determined by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.
