MORRISTOWN - A 28-year-old Morristown man has been charged with felony murder of a 3-year-old boy. Joshua Matthew Darnell was charged Thursday after the boy, Zylin Seth Reese, died at East Tennessee Children's Hospital of injuries sustained while he was in the care of Darnell. Darnell told authorities he was babysitting the child from about 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday while his mother, Terri Reese, 23, was working, Morristown Police Major Michelle Jones said today. Darnell admitted spanking the boy, who was unresponsive when his mother returned home from work, Jones said.
