Sean Michael Phillips Preliminary Hearing Postponed

The preliminary trial for Sean Michael Phillips is being rescheduled. Phillips was scheduled to be in court this week for a two-day preliminary examination on the charge of murdering his daughter, Katherine Phillips. A new date hasn't been set yet. In the meantime, Phillips remains lodged at Carson City Correctional Facility for a ten to 15 year sentence on unlawful imprisonment of his daughter.  He appealed the conviction but the Michigan Court of Appeals upheld the ruling last month.
