COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A Kenton County man admitted to providing alcohol to a teenager on the night of her death.

Jordan Hart, 21, pled guilty to unlawful transaction with a minor and was sentenced to six months probation and community service.

Hart admitted to giving alcohol to Karen Kappelman, 15, during a party in Kenton County in February.

Kappelman was found dead later that night, barely clothed and laying in the snow near her family's apartment in Walton. The Boone County coroner said she died of hypothermia, but that ethyl alcohol intoxication also contributed to her death.
