Father of missing MI. baby faces murder charge - Hey Kid 555666

LUDINGTON, MI(AP) - Prosecutors say they are filing a murder charge against the father of a western Michigan infant missing since 2011.

State Attorney General Bill Schuette and Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola say Friday that 23-year-old Sean Phillips faces one count of open murder.

Phillips was convicted of unlawful imprisonment last year in the disappearance of Katherine Phillips. She was 4½ months old when last seen in the Ludington area, about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Prosecutors say Sean Phillips took the baby from her mother because he feared a court-ordered paternity test would show he was the father.

He received a sentence of 10 to 15 years in prison and is appealing.

Investigators have said seeds and other material on Phillips' shoes could be crucial to locating a body.
