She was unconscious and had obvious bruises to her head and face when first responders picked her up at Partin's home, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones said.
However, according to WXIX, Partin originally told a 911 dispatcher that Wesche had mysteriously passed out after her father dropped her off.
Lindsay Partin, 35, is charged with felonious assault and child endangering, according to WCPO Channel 9.
A toddler in OH suffered severe brain damage after being allegedly beaten by her babysitter, the child's family said, according to reports Monday. It's not clear when she's expected back in court. Jones said she admitted to "striking" the girl. Partin was accused of having struck and shook Hannah, causing "serious physical harm" Thursday at her residence in 4000 block of Shank Road in Hanover Township, sheriff's officials alleged. Bayne said that after Hannah is gone, they plan to keep her memory alive by donating the funds that are leftover towards preventing and stopping child abuse. I can't begin to explain the feeling of losing a child at the hands of this....of just a violent act.
"It's unimaginable", Wesche said.
"'We have to sit here and look at our dead little Hannah and just wait for these exams to tell us what we already know, ' Hannah" s aunt Megan Latham told via WLWT.
"We just want to stress with this situation it is devastating". "I just can't believe somebody had this in them".
Latham described the 3-year-old as sassy and bubbly.
She was taken to Fort Hamilton Hospital and then air-lifted to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center where she remains in critical condition.
"I think she fought the best that she could which is all we can ask, and I think God just has a better plan for her and I know she is in a better place and she is not suffering", Latham said. "Hannah was great", Wesche said Monday at Partin's arraignment, according to ABC affiliate WWSB.
Partin's bond was set at $30,000 and she is scheduled for another court hearing later this week.
"She is an active member of her church".
