He was convicted for the 2011 incident that severely injured his then 2-year old victim. Now, Thomas J. Abitz has been charged with her 2017 death. Abitz was back in court Monday, facing a homicide charge as a result of the incident. Abitz has been serving time for abusing the victim. Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney said 8-year old Mckena Marie Nett died of pneumonia back in 2017, but the pneumonia was caused by the injuries she received six years earlier.
