  Original Published: 8/20/2013A Mansfield couple who pleaded no contest in June to child endangering in connection with the death of their son were sentenced Monday in Richland County Common Pleas Court. William Keim, 34, and Jenica Keim, 32, were each sentenced to six months probation as part of a plea agreement. The couple's 2-year-old son, Dalton Keim, was seriously burned when a boiling pot of water fell on him on May 4, 2012. He suffered severe burns, but the Keims used an Amish burn remedy to treat him instead of taking the little boy to the hospital. The little boy died the following day after he stopped breathing. Original charges of involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide were dismissed against the couple in their son's death.
