LUDINGTON, Michigan — A hearing is set for December on prosecutors' appeal of the dismissal of a murder charge against a northern Lower Peninsula man accused of killing his missing infant daughter.

The hearing date of Dec. 5 was set Thursday. Arguments will be held in Mason County Circuit Court.

State and county prosecutors are appealing District Judge Peter Wadel's September ruling that threw out an open murder charge against 24-year-old Sean Phillips.

Katherine Phillips disappeared in 2011 in the Ludington area, about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Phillips already is serving 10 to 15 years in prison for unlawful imprisonment in the disappearance of the girl widely known as "Baby Kate."

Her body remains missing. Wadel says there isn't enough evidence she's dead.
