Frankfort woman faces murder charge in toddler’s death

Frankfort — A central Indiana woman who had faced a maximum of eight years in prison in connection with the neglect death of her 2-year-old girl could stand trial for murder and other charges now that a prosecutor has withdrawn a plea agreement.

Clinton County Prosecutor Tony Sommer tells the Lafayette Journal & Courier he withdrew the deal for 31-year-old Patience Kuhlman of Frankfort because she hasn’t met all of its requirements.

She had pleaded guilty in January in to neglect of a dependent causing serious bodily injury for her involvement in the 2009 death of Keaton Kuhlman. Her boyfriend also pleaded guilty to a neglect charge and faces up to 35 years in prison.

Kuhlman’s attorney, Brad Mohler, says the defense will negotiate a new deal or prepare for trial.
