GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - A trial date has been set for a man charged in connection with the death of a 2-year-old girl.

Media outlets report that a Kentucky judge set an April 19, 2016 trial date for Anthony Barbour during a hearing Monday.

Authorities have charged Barbour with murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence in connection with the death of Laynee Wallace earlier this year. The girl was reported missing May 19 and police found her body in a well six days later. Police arrested Barbour the day the girl’s body was found. Law enforcement believes the girl was killed May 17 or 18.

Barbour’s attorney, Ken Garrett, says he may look into a change of venue for the trial because of the media attention the case has received.
