HAMILTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Butler County mother who admitted guilt in her child’s death was sentenced to serve 11 years in prison.
23-year-old Rebekah Kinner’s attorney said during sentencing that she had been a victim of a rape and attempted murder when she was 13, and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and major depressive disorder as a result.
Kinner accepted full responsibility for her conduct with a guilty plea in March. Kinner faced up to 25 years in prison.

Kinner’s boyfriend Bradley Young, 26, has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, felony endangering children and involuntary manslaughter in the death of Kinner’s 2-year-old daughter Kinsley. Young’s trial is scheduled for April 25.
Authorities say Kinner’s 2-year-old daughter Kinsley was found beaten and unconscious at the couple’s Madison Township home in December. She died at a hospital the next day.
