HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - A southwest Ohio judge has refused to dismiss charges for a man accused of fatally beating his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter.

Attorneys for Bradley Young argued charges should be dropped because Butler County sheriff’s detectives listened to four recorded calls between the jailed suspect and a defense attorney and improperly gathered information.

The judge concluded there was an issue with the jail’s phone system but that there’s “very little evidence value” in the calls.

Young pleaded not guilty to murder, child endangerment and involuntary manslaughter charges in the death of Kinsley Kinner. She was found beaten and unconscious at the couple’s Madison Township home in December and died the next day.

Her mother previously pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced last month to 11 years in prison.
