Robert TraylorLEBANON, OH – Robert Traylor was found guilty Friday of cutting off his 13-day-old daughter’s nose and sentenced to eight years in prison.

Last year, the child’s mother said she was in the kitchen doing dishes when her baby daughter, Kynzie, started crying. When she went to investigate, she found that the infant’s nose has been cut off.

“There was no nose. All you could see was bone. It was horrific,” she would say later.

During her call to 911, the woman told the operator that her 3-year-old son had bitten off his sister’s nose and that he displayed biting issues in the past. When the girl was admitted to the hospital, she was also suffering from two skull fractures, broken ribs and bruised feet.

These injuries, on top of the girl’s missing nose, led police to believe that there was more to this story than what was being told. This was confirmed when the mother of the baby changed her story and told police she believed her husband, 26-year-old Robert Taylor, was the person responsible for their daughter’s injuries.

She told police she came to that conclusion one day after her daughter was in the hospital. She said that’s when her son pointed to a picture of his sister and said, “that’s where daddy bite sissy.” She also changed the events leading up to her discovering her daughter’s injury.

Instead of being in the kitchen while her two children were in the living room, her final story is that she and her two kids were sleeping and she woke up to find that her daughter’s nose had been cut off.

Why the change in stories is anyone’s guess, but I think the reason is pretty clear. Regardless, she ended up doing the right thing and her Traylor was arrested and charged with child endangering and felonious assault.

Although there was never any physical proof Traylor harmed his daughter and he has always maintained his innocence, he was found guilty of those charges last Friday. Aside from the circumstantial evidence presented to the jury, former Warren County inmate Kenny Rosenbalm was also brought on the stand. He was in jail with Traylor and told the jury Traylor admitted he’d hurt the baby with a knife.

“They started fighting back and forth and the baby ended up getting dropped along the way and things just escalated from there,” Rosenbalm testified. “Right after that is when he said the baby’s nose ended up getting cut off. He cut the baby’s nose off because it wouldn’t quit crying.”

Whether or not the jury believed Rosenbalm, they did believe Traylor was guilty. They found him guilty of both charges and the judge sentenced him to eight years in prison – the maximum sentence allowed. If that penalty seems light to you, well you are not alone.

“When you cause those kind of lifelong permanent injuries to a 13-day-old child, the idea that you’d only go to prison for eight years to me is just ridiculous,” said prosecutor David Fornshell, who hopes this case will prompt legislators to create harsher punishments and more jail time for these types of crimes.

The girl’s mother has since divorced Traylor and says that her daughter never fully recovered. She says the girl now has special needs and likely will for the rest of her life.
