The baby girl was killed in a Milham Meadows Apartment in Portage, Michigan, on August 12.
The toddler was found unresponsive when first responders arrived at a residence at approximately 10pm, according to police.
She passed away just hours later, after being transported to Bronson Methodist Hospital.
Hart’s death was determined a homicide by the Kalamazoo County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Police have revealed that Emmendorfer – the estranged boyfriend to the deceased baby’s mom – has been charged with criminal sexual conduct, child abuse, and open murder.
Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting told the Michigan news outlet: “I’m grateful we are able to authorize charges in this tragedy.
“It’s important, however, to realize that a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and we’re just at the beginning of a long process in the criminal justice system.”
