SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man accused of killing his 3-month-old daughter who was found dead in a car seat in his truck has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge and other counts.

Twenty-two-year-old Brian Hayslip pleaded not guilty Friday in Clark County Common Pleas Court in Springfield. He is charged in the death of Lilly Hayslip. The judge kept the bond for Hayslip at $300,000.

Court documents allege the 22-year-old Springfield man told police he shook his daughter when she began crying Dec. 27. Her body was found inside his running truck in Mercer County.

Authorities say they tracked Hayslip to a nearby field. They said he told them he was looking for a place to bury Lilly.
