Sean Michael Phillips' preliminary hearing won't take place until next year.
He is being charged with murdering his daughter, Baby Kate. The new hearing date won't be until January to give Phillips' attorney, David Glancy, more time to prepare. Phillips is currently serving a ten to 15 year sentence at Carson City Correctional Facility for false imprisonment. Earlier this month, Attorney General, Bill Schuette and Mason County Prosecutor, Paul Spaniola, announced they were charging Phillips for open murder based on new evidence in the case, although documents show the evidence is circumstantial.
