LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — The Michigan Supreme Court will not hear an appeal in the case involving the missing Ludington girl referred to as Baby Kate.

In April 2012, Sean Phillips was convicted of the unlawful imprisonment of his baby daughter Katherine. The 5-month-old girl went missing in June 2011.

Phillips appealed to the Michigan Supreme Court, but the court decided not to hear the case. That means Phillips’ prison sentence of up to 15 years will stand.

Phillips now faces a murder charge in the case.
