BG woman's boyfriend sentenced after death of 2-year-old daughter

36 year-old Nathan Brenner

A Liberty Center man, set to go on trial next week, has taken a plea in the case of a 2-year-old Bowling Green girl killed last year.

36 year-old Nathan Brenner entered Alford pleas to a pair of charges for endangering a child, and in exchange, murder and involuntary manslaughter charges against him were dropped.

Brenner was arrested in 2012 following the death of his girlfriend's daughter, Emma Zehnpfennig.

The 2-year-old died of abusive head trauma in March of 2012.

Brenner will serve 11 years in prison for the child endangerment convictions.
