BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Rebekah Kinner was sentenced to 11 years in prison Thursday for the beating death case of her 2-year-old daughter.

Kinner, 23, said she takes responsibility for not removing Kinsley Kinner from a “dangerous” and “escalating” situation, her attorney described in court.  

 “The last thing she said to me was ‘I love you more momma’ and that’s all I hear constantly,” Kinner said before a Butler County courtroom. “And if could take my daughter's place, I’d do it in a heartbeat.”

Her boyfriend, Bradley Young, is accused of beating Kinner so badly she had no brain activity and was on a ventilator before her Dec. 4 death. Prosecutors said Kinner did nothing to stop the abuse. She pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, endangering children and permitting child abuse.

"When she met Brad, there was something that changed about Bekah," Kinsley's father, Scott Senft, said in court. 

Kinner cried in court as family members told a judge she was a great mother who would never hurt her child.

Holding a lock of the toddler's hair, Kinsley's paternal grandmother agreed Rebekah was a good mother, but urged the judge to put her behind bars.

Bradley Young’s trial is delayed while a special judge hears a motion to dismiss his murder charge.
