Kennett, MO (KSDK) - A November 18, 2013 trial date was set Monday for the man accused of kidnapping and killing a three year old girl in 2011.
44 year old Shawn Morgan of Senath is also charged with armed criminal action, evidence tampering, and possession of child pornography.
Investigators say Morgan abducted the child, BreeAnn Rodriguez on August 6, 2011 as the youngster was riding her bicycle near a swimming pool on Morgan's property.
Prosecutors allege Morgan killed the child, then tossed her into flood waters of a nearby ditch where she was later found.
Authorities say Morgan strangled the young girl. He remains jailed without bond awaiting his trial.
