An Ohio woman and her boyfriend are facing the criminal after the woman’s daughter  — who was choked and punched — was taken off of life support on Wednesday, according to reports.

Tianna Robinson, 25, was arrested on April 13 stemming from allegations that she punched Nahla Miller, 4, who was hospitalized from April 13 until her death. Robinson admitted to punching Miller and strangling her until she stopped breathing, WXIX reported, citing court documents.

Robinson, who was arrested before her daughter’s death, was charged with attempted murder, endangering children, and felonious assault.

The mother’s boyfriend, Rensley Washington, 25, was charged with endangering children and obstructing justice. He is accused of lying to police about the nature of Miller’s injuries, claiming the girl had fallen off a scooter.

WKRC reported that Robinson told a 911 dispatcher that her daughter had stopped breathing three minutes earlier.

“She was just fine and then she passed out. Then re-woke up and passed out again,” Robinson allegedly said.

The prosecutor told WKRC that they are awaiting the report from the coroner, which will list the final cause of death. before they upgrade the charges against Robinson. The deceased girl’s father is not involved in the ongoing criminal investigation.

Robinson remains jailed on a $1 million bond. Washington’s bond was set at $90,000.
