The Ludington Daily News reported 21-year-old Sean Phillips’ trial on unlawful imprisonment and parental kidnapping charges has been scheduled to start Jan. 17 in Ludington.

The Scottville man is jailed on $250,000 bond. He rejected a plea deal in the case last month. The charges carry up to 15 years imprisonment.

Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips 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.
