The Butler County authorities declared that a 3-year-old child was airlifted to the hospital on Thursday in critical condition after her babysitter claimed that she collapsed. On Monday, her father said that the child is brain dead. The authorities arrested the babysitter and charged her with aggravated assault.
Brain Dead Child Beaten Because She Asked for Sweets
Jason Wesche, the three-year-old’s father, told the authorities that for the past couple of weeks, his daughter has been complaining about mild headaches each time she returned from her babysitter’s house.
The man didn’t suspect anything until last Thursday when he dropped Hannah at 35-year-old Lindsey Partin’s home. It was around 8 a.m. when the woman called the father, telling him that something might be terribly wrong with his daughter.
Wesche arrived in time to see Hannah lying on the floor, gasping for air. Panicking, the woman called the authorities and, without sharing any details, told the emergency dispatcher to send someone at her home.
The authorities rushed little Hannah to the hospital in critical condition. Upon examining Hannah’s body, the ER doctors discovered signs of trauma which indicated that the girl might have been physically abused.
A day later, the authorities have arrested 35-year-old Lindsey Partin on suspicion of aggravated assault. At first, the woman told the authorities that little Hannah took a little tumble in her garage, but she did not appear to be injured.
However, the woman later admitted that she slapped and shoved her because Hannah kept asking her for doughnuts. Unfortunately, the doctors could do little about Hannah’s injuries, and so, on Monday, Wesche came forward and declared that her daughter was listed as brain dead with virtually no chances of recovery.
The killer nanny was booked into the county jail in lieu of a $30,000 bond.
