Court sets sentencing date for father of 'Baby Kate'

With the verdict in, Sean Phillips will soon be sentenced for his daughter's murder.

LUDINGTON, MICH. - With the verdict in, Sean Phillips is learning when he will be sentenced for his daughter's murder.

A jury last week found Phillips guilty of killing his 4-month-old daughter, Katherine, also known as "Baby Kate." It took the jury three days to reach its decision.

Her body has never been found.

To reach that verdict on the second-degree murder charge, they had to conclude that Phillips intended to kill his 4-month-old daughter.

The judge threw out the charge of first-degree murder after prosecutors failed to prove Phillips planned the killing.

Phillips will be sentenced at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 9, 2016, in Ludington.
