Judge To Hear Evidence In Northern Michigan Baby's Death

Posted: Updated:

LUDINGTON, Mich. (AP) - A northern Michigan man accused of killing his infant daughter is facing an important hearing to determine if there's enough evidence to send the case to trial.

Sean Phillips is charged with murder in the disappearance of Katherine Phillips, a 4½-month-old known as "Baby Kate." She hasn't been seen since 2011.

The court hearing starts Thursday in Ludington, about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids, and could last two days.

Phillips has been in prison since 2012 for a crime related to the case. He was sentenced to 10 years behind bars for unlawful imprisonment for failing to return the child to her mother.

Investigators have tried to find a body by examining seeds and other plant material on Phillips' shoes. There have been extensive searches in Mason County.
