A man accused of killing his girlfriend's daughter pleaded not guilty this morning in a Mesa County Courtroom.

33-year-old Charles McEachern is charged with murder and child abuse. Investigators say he was baby-sitting three-year-old Miranda Baca two years ago and when the girl's mother came home. She found Miranda with serious injuries. The child died later that day.

An autopsy shows the girl died from blunt force trauma to the head.

A trial is now set for July.
