Phillips’ lawyer argued his client was the father of Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips and couldn’t be convicted of kidnapping under state law.

Katherine was 4 1/2 months old when she last was seen June 29 with Phillips. Katherine lived with her mother, Ariel Courtland, at an apartment in Ludington. Extensive searches haven’t turned up the girl.
