Dayton Mother Pleads Guilty in Connection With Death of Her Toddler
DAYTON--A Dayton mother pleaded guilty in connection with the death of her 19-month-old son.
As part of a plea agreement, 25-year-old Crystal Laurel plead guilty as charged to: Involuntary Manslaughter, Permitting Child Abuse, Endangering Children and Tampering With Evidence.
Also in part of this plea agreement, Laurel has agreed to testify against her boyfriend Dustin Rybak who is charged with the child's murder. She also agreed to a sentence of 4-7 years.
Rybak was also in court Thursday morning where he entered a not guilty plea to his charges of: Murder, Involuntary Manslaughter, Endangering Children and Tampering With Evidence.
Both remain in the Montgomery County jail on 1 million dollar bonds.
A sheriff's deputy responded April 7 to Dayton Children's Hospital on a report of possible child abuse. Takota Hasty had been brought to the hospital in complete cardiopulmonary arrest, had no pulse, and was not breathing, Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said.
Takota reportedly had numerous cuts and abrasions and a number of burn marks. He was placed on life support, but had no brain activity and was removed from life support and died the next afternoon.
Heck said an autopsy determined the cause of death was from blunt force trauma to the head and neck.
"This toddler was abused, beat, cut and burned to the point that his injuries proved fatal," Heck said following the indictment. "The defendants even tried to cover up the child's injuries with makeup before taking him to the hospital."
