MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) - A man accused in the death of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter has been charged with murder, while the child’s mother is charged with permitting child abuse.

A court official says 26-year-old Bradley Young and 23-year-old Rebecca Kinner were arraigned Friday in Middletown Municipal Court. Young is also charged with felonious assault.

Young’s attorney, Frank Schiavone (shuh-VOHN-ee) IV, said he entered not-guilty pleas on his client’s behalf but declined to comment further.

No plea was entered for Kinner. Her attorney, Chris Atkins, said he hadn’t been able to talk with her and had no immediate comment.

Butler County sheriff’s deputies said the two were jailed after emergency crews summoned to a Madison Township house Wednesday found the child beaten and unconscious. She was put on life support and died Thursday night.
