LUDINGTON, Michigan — A judge says he'll announce in two weeks whether a northern Michigan man will be tried on a charge of murdering his baby daughter, whose body has never been found.

A probable cause hearing for 24-year-old Sean Phillips on an open murder charge wrapped up Thursday in district court in Ludington.

Judge Peter Wadel says he'll weigh the testimony before making his decision on whether to try Phillips.

Four-and-a-half-month-old Katherine Phillips disappeared in 2011 in the Ludington area, about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

Phillips already is serving at least 10 years in prison for unlawful imprisonment in the disappearance of the infant, known as Baby Kate.
