FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man who pleaded not guilty to causing the death of his 2-month-old daughter is scheduled to change his plea.

Thirty-year-old Nicholas Desjarlais (duh-ZHAR’-lay) is accused of falling asleep and smothering the baby after a night of drinking last summer.

He pleaded not guilty in March to a negligent homicide charge that carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison.

Court documents show that a change-of-plea hearing is scheduled July 13.
