HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Ohio —
Court documents obtained Monday provided new insight into a toddler’s death in Butler County.
Lindsay Partin, 35, is accused of abusing 3-year-old Hannah Wesche in early March.
The alleged abuse happened at Partin’s home on Shank Road. Police said Wesche’s father had been bringing her there for months for child care.
Court documents state that Partin’s alleged abuse was sparked by Hannah dumping ketchup in the toilet.
Wesche went to the hospital on March 8 after Partin called 911, and was pronounced brain dead, police said.
Court documents said she had injuries to her face, ear, chest and neck, which investigators say were the result of abuse by Partin.
Wesche died just three days later.
Partin is facing a murder charge.
Lindsay Partin is charged with murder, four counts of felony endangering children, and involuntary manslaughter after 3-year-old Hannah Wesche died.
