PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - A trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday for a Bellevue man accused of causing the death of his 5-month-old daughter.

Sarpy County court records say 22-year-old Camron Ludi has pleaded not guilty to two drug possession counts and to one of intentional child abuse resulting in death. His daughter, Cassidy, died in July last year.

The records say Ludi told investigators that he put the baby on his bed and went outside to smoke a cigarette. He says she was crying on the floor when he returned. She died hours later at a hospital.

A pathologist says Cassidy’s injuries were inconsistent with a 30-inch fall onto a rug.
