WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Iowa’s chief medical examiner says a 2-year-old girl who was found cold and unresponsive nearly two years ago in Waterloo likely died of hypothermia.

Dr. Julie Goodin testified Friday in the case against 38-year-old Nathaniel Knight, who was babysitting Kennadi Porter the night she was found dead in March 2013. Knight has been charged with child endangerment resulting in death.

Goodin says Porter’s autopsy narrowed the cause of death to either hypothermia or drowning. She says doctors who treated Porter found no signs of drowning.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1CBOOyD ) Porter’s body temperature was 76 degrees when she arrived at the hospital.

Knight told police he had given Porter a bath, put her to bed and noticed she wasn’t breathing about 15 minutes later.
