TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Family and friends now have to bury four-year-old Kaycie Bork, who police say died at the hands of her mother's boyfriend.

Police say Troy Semenovich beat Kaycie and slammed her in a stove. Now Kaycie's family is hoping to raise awareness about abuse and raise funds to bury the little girl.

Kaycie's father, Danny Bork, was too distraught to talk to WTOL, but he had support tonight.

"I try to forgive," says Kaycie's great uncle, Dennis Ahrendt, "but I'm struggling with that. I'm struggling with forgiveness and understanding at the same time."

He said every minute since the news of Kaycie's injuries and death the emotions change from anger, hurt, and confusion.

"It was so surreal that it was happening especially happening to our family," Arhendt told WTOL.

Kaycie was born a pre-mature fraternal twin, and was taken way too early. Her family says her nickname was "peanut" and she always had a smile.

The family says they weren't prepared for such a sudden death, and now they've set up a memorial fund in Kaycie Bork's name at any Fifth Third Bank for donations.

Dennis says none of the money will be used for Kaycie's mother's defense but rather to make sure Kaycie is buried properly.

He says, "It's something that I hope no other family in Toledo or anywhere has to experience."

The family says child abuse is an unbelievably hard situation to go through and they encourage you to report it right away if you see it happening.

    Toledo has a long and storied history of hockey in the city going back to the first team, the Toledo Mercurys, who played their first season in 1947-48. Other iterations included the Blades, the Hornets, the Goaldiggers and the Storm. For a short time, in 1949-50, the team was actually called the Toledo Buckeyes.
