MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in her 2-year-old daughter’s beating death has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.
A Butler County judge on Thursday sentenced 23-year-old Rebekah Kinner in the death of her daughter, Kinsley.
Kinner told the judge she loved her daughter and took responsibility for not getting her out of the situation.
Kinner also had pleaded guilty to child abuse and endangering children. She could have been sentenced to up to 25 years in prison.
Prosecutors say Kinner’s boyfriend, Bradley Young, beat Kinsley to death. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, felony child endangering and involuntary manslaughter.
Authorities say Kinsley was found beaten and unconscious at the couple’s Madison Township home in December. She died the next day.
