The Pike County Prosecutor's Office says Christopher Morton's rap sheet goes back to 1999. Some charges include dealing marijuana, disorderly conduct, battery, and most recently domestic battery in front of a child.
The charge was filed in 2011, but we're told he's been in and out of jail since then because the court deemed he was "a risk to the general community." He was released mid-September.
Morton is accused of killing 24-year-old Kelsie McDonald.
