A four-year-old girl died after her mum allegedly choked and punched her until she stopped breathing.
Nahla Miller died at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Ohio last week after she was taken off life support, according to reports.
Cops arrested the girl’s mum, Tianna Robinson, 25, in Springfield Township, Hamilton County on April 13 after the vicious assault, Fox 19 reports.

She was charged with attempted murder, endangering children and felonious assault before Nahla died this week.
“This complaint is based on investigation and admission from Tianna Robinson that she punched the four-year-old victim multiple times before strangling her until she stopped breathing,” court documents read.
Robinson told a 911 operator her daughter stopped breathing three minutes before making the call, according to WKRC.
“She was just fine and then she passed out. Then re-woke up and passed out again,” Robinson reportedly said.
The prosecutor said they are waiting for the little girl’s final cause of death before they potentially upgrade the charges against the mum, WKRC reports.
Nahla’s dad said the little girl was a “sweetheart who loved to play outside”.
Court documents show Robinson’s boyfriend, Rensley Washington, 25, has also been charged with endangering children and obstructing justice.

The documents suggest Washington lied to the cops about the girl’s injuries by claiming she fell off a scooter.
Washington’s bond is set at $90,000 ($A116,000) and Robinson is in jail on a $1 million bond
($A1.2 million), according to reports.
