Newsman’s Mother-In-Law: He Beat My Daughter ‘For A Decade’
That’s the claim of Martha Risk, the mother of Ashley Morrison, whose husband Rob Morrison is now ordered to stay away from Ashley.
Martha Risk told the Daily News she feared for her oft-battered child whenever the phone rang as the storybook Morrison marriage deteriorated into a prime-time tragedy.
“You wonder when you are going to get another call, if it’s going to be the hospital,” Risk said before Morrison resigned Wednesday from his WCBS-TV anchorman job. “How bad is she hurt this time? You have such a horrible feeling in yourself … This has gone on for too long.”
Risk said ex-Marine Morrison was “drunk as a skunk” when he dialed her Indiana home around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, and she immediately worried about daughter Ashley’s safety.

“When you choke someone, you know how quick it is to tear a blood vessel?” said Risk. “Within minutes, you can kill someone. It’s attempted murder.”
