A 10-year-old heroic boy tried to protect a girl after being stabbed by his own father.

Kane Morris staggered in the eight-year-old girl's room to try to protect her from her father, while she had already been stabbed.

Andrew Morris, 39, admitted to six times plunging a knife into his boy in a knife frenzy at an apartment in Coupar Angus, Scotland.

Kane collapsed in front of the girl's door and died about 90 minutes later, reports the Daily Record.

The girl who had been stabbed in the abdomen and limbs had a collapsed lung and was hospitalized for four weeks.

Yesterday, Judge Lord Mulholland told the Glasgow High Court: "It seems to me that Kane has shown incredible courage and sense of sacrifice. Rather than thinking of himself, his concern was with the eight-year-old girl.

"For a 10-year-old boy to do, it shows incredible courage."

The 10-year-old has been stabbed six times.

Morris will soon be sentenced

He added, "The eight-year-old has also shown incredible courage."

According to the Scottish Sun, Laura Ann Gillie, mother of 38-year-old Kane, said, "To me, Kane has proven to be the bravest person I know – he sacrificed his life.

"" Since that terrible night, I have feelings of anger, hatred and disgust that I would have never thought possible, but especially to myself for not having protected my beautiful baby.

"I will work tirelessly to keep his memory alive."

Morris pleaded guilty yesterday to murdering Kane – a talented singer and wildlife lover – in an apartment in Coupar Angus, Perthshire, last November.

The thug also confessed to attempting to murder the girl, who had been shot with a deadly weapon and fought for her life in the hospital.

After attacking the children, former soldier Morris stabbed himself five times and jumped through the third-floor window, suffering serious injuries.

Lord Mulholland postponed the conviction of Morris until August 12 to allow for the preparation of psychiatric and criminal justice reports.
