Adding, 'Within the next couple of days we are told that it's going to come to an end'.

Hannah was gasping for air.

She was booked into Butler County Jail on charges of endangering children and felonious assault.

"The little girl, she's three", Partin called 911 and told an operator, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, which obtained the 13-minute-long recording of the conversation Thursday.

Hannah's relatives have said they are outraged that Partin is now out on bond, but said they're determined to continue Hannah's fight.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office says emergency crews found Hannah unresponsive with labored breathing and bruises about her head and face, the Associated Press reported.

Hannah Wesche, 3, was flown by helicopter to Cincinnati Children's Hospital and is in the intensive care unit, WLWT Channel 5 reports. She's been there ever since.

Court documents seen by WLWT5 saw Partin admitted shaking Hannah before she was killed, with relatives claiming she had also been punched before passing out.

"The little girl. She's 3".

According to Hannah's father, Jason Wesche, doctors concluded the toddler was brain dead.

'Yes, ' responded Partin, heard crying. "We do not know if the child will survive her injuries at this time". I can't begin to explain the feeling of losing a child at the hands of this ... of just a violent act.

Three-year-old Hannah Wesche, of Hamilton Township, was on life support at a hospital. "I can't believe this is happening".

Latham described her niece as sassy and bubbly, "she could walk into a room and she just has that personality ... she just shines", Latham said.

Wesche said he knew Partin through a friend and she had all the necessary credentials to look after his youngest daughter, Hannah.

"I babysit kids. He just drooped her off and all of a sudden she just passed out", she said.

Jason Wesche said he'd like to donate his daughter's organs so others have a chance at survival. She is being held in the Butler County Jail without bond. At her arraignment on Monday, the former babysitter pled not guilty to both charges.

Partin is scheduled to appear in court this morning.
