HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — The trial of an Ohio baby sitter charged with murder in the death of a 3-year-old girl has been set for fall.
A judge on Monday set Oct. 2 for 36-year-old Lindsay Partin’s trial in a court in Hamilton, about 35 miles north of Cincinnati.
Emergency crews responded to Partin’s residence for an unconscious child on March 8. Authorities say they found Hannah Wesche unresponsive with labored breathing and bruises.
According to court documents, Partin told dispatchers the girl had fallen recently and "just passed out."
The child was hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury and a cervical spinal cord hemorrhage. She died March 18. Prosecutors allege Partin previously hit the girl for dumping ketchup in the toilet.
A message seeking comment from Partin’s attorney wasn’t returned Monday.
She has pleaded not guilty.
