Ludington kidnapping suspect in court

After three hours of testimony at a preliminary hearing, Sean Michael Phillips has been bound over for trial on kidnapping charges in the case of Baby Kate.

Phillips is charged with kidnapping charges Katherine Phillips, also known now as Baby Kate. Police believe she was last seen with him.

During the hearing, Kate's mother Ariel Courtland, testified that she had last seen the then four-month old in a car seat in Phillips car.

Police testified that during a pat-down of Phillips when he was taken into custody, police found the pink shorts and white top that Kate was last seen wearing. The clothing was balled up in Phillips' cargo shorts pocket. When repeatedly asked where Kate was, Phillips said "Ariel had it," referring to the missing baby, according to police.

Police also testified that Phillips was nervous and admitted not telling police everything he knew about the child's disappearance when they located him at his parents' house about four hours after Kate went missing.

Baby Kate disappeared in late June. Search crews were unable to find her in the Ludington area. The ground search was called off, but police are still collecting tips.

Baby Kate case: Phillips to stand trial
Sean Phillips allegedly kidnapped 4-month-old

The man accused of kidnapping still missing 5-month-old "Baby Kate" from her Ludington home was ordered Wednesday to stand trial, after investigators testified that the girl's clothes were found in Sean Phillips' pocket the day she went misssing.

Phillips, who sat in court dressed in an orange jumpsuit and a bulletproof vest, will remain in jail, at least for now. Judge Peter Wadel continued the $500,000 bond keeping the defendant in custody.

With tears in her eyes, Katherine Phillips' mother, Ariel Courtland, testified that the clothes -- along with a diaper bag and a car seat found in Sean Phillips' car -- were indeed Kate's.

A Ludington police officer testified that he and a Mason County sheriff's deputy found the items on the day of the disappearance -- June 29 -- during their first in-person conversation with Phillips.

He was pacing, nervous, had a twitching muscle and maintained a boxing stance toward the officer, investigators testified.

Baby Kate case featured on HLN's Nancy Grace (video)

On August 16, 2011, HLN’s Nancy Grace discussed the case of missing 5-month-old Kate Phillips “Baby Kate.” Authorities have filed kidnapping charges against Kate’s father, Sean Michael Phillips, and in a hearing held this month it was determined he will stand trial. He is currently in jail on $500,000 bond.

According to Kate’s mother, Ariel Courtland, Phillips wanted to give the baby up for adoption and continually pushed the issue. New details in the case show that on June 29, 2011; Phillips wanted to give Kate up for adoption while Courtland had changed her mind and determined she would keep the baby. She had established an appointment for Kate’s DNA to be taken and believed Phillips would give her and the baby a ride to the hospital. Instead, Phillips drove to the Department of Children and Families where he wanted to proceed with plans for Kate’s adoption. After fighting, Phillips drove Courtland back home where she exited the vehicle and went to her apartment to get Baby Kate’s stroller. It was when she returned from the apartment that Sean Phillips drove off with the baby in his vehicle.

New court date set for accused kidnapper
‎Proceeds of new children’s book to go to reward fund

Katherine “Kate” Phillips hasn’t been located after nearly two months of searching and a new court date for her accused kidnapper has been set.
A final conference for Sean Phillips, 21, of Scottville, is scheduled for 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11 at the Mason County Courthouse. Phillips is facing a charge of kidnapping. He was bound over to 51st Circuit Court earlier this month after a preliminary exam in 79th District Court.

If still alive, Baby Kate would now be 6 months old. She was last seen June 29 in the car of Sean Phillips outside of her mother Ariel Courtland’s apartment at Birch Lake Apartments on Tinkham Avenue, according to Courtland’s report to the Ludington Police Department.

Sean Phillips, who Courtland said is the baby’s father, has been in police custody since June 29 when police located him at his parents’ Millerton Road home hours after Kate was reported missing; however, the infant was not with him. He has not told police what may have happened to Kate.

Book to benefit reward fund

A North Muskegon woman has written a children’s book and plans to donate all proceeds from it to the reward fund to help find Baby Kate.

Officials mum on Baby Kate

Officials still will not say whether a DNA test has determined if Sean Phillips is the father of missing infant Katherine “Kate” Phillips.

While some media outlets have reported a DNA test confirmed Sean’s paternity, both Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola or Ludington Police Chief Mark Barnett said Monday they will not confirm or deny reports of such findings.

Spaniola also would not comment on the significance of DNA in this case.

A call to Phillips’ attorney Annette Smedley was not returned.

Mason County Clerk Jim Riffle couldn’t say if changes to Kate’s birth record had been made recently, as birth records are not available to the public.

According to the State of Michigan, only a person or parent named, or a court-appointed legal guardian of the person listed on the document has access to a birth record if it’s less than 100 years old.

Information provided in a birth certificate may become available if the document comes out during court proceedings, Rifle said.

Changes can be made to a birth record, for example a name change or the addition of a father.

While steps can be taken locally to change the status of paternity on a birth certificate, such as a DNA test being taken, changes to the actual document must be made at the state level with the Department of Community Health, Riffle said.

Court documents show 79th District Court Judge Peter J. Wadel signed an order for Sean Phillips to provide a DNA sample June 30, the day after Kate disappeared.

Motion to drop charges in missing baby case

It is a case that has left investigators stumped.

It's been almost two months since baby Katherine Phillips went missing from her Ludington home, now lawyers for the man accused of kidnapping her claim they have grounds to have the charges against him dropped.

7&4's Lauren Amstutz was in Ludington on Wednesday and has the latest on the investigation.

Baby Kate signs are still on store fronts and Ludington Police Chief Mark Barnett is still searching for answers. Katherine Phillips disappeared on June 29th when police say Sean Michael Phillips drove off with her in front of the Birch Lake Apartments. Police say they found her clothes in Phillip's pocket, but couldn't locate the infant.

Chief Barnett says, "Tips have continued to come in, but the flow is just not what it initIally was. Detective are following up so they continue to work it from that standpoint."

Chief Barnett says his police officers work on the case everyday, he says it's one of the most frustrating investigations they've ever been involved with.

Chief Barnett says, "This is not a who-done-it case. We have a suspect who's been charged with a crime, its my feeling that there is one person who knows where baby Kate is and they're just choosing not to say. Its frustrating from that standpoint."

Lawyer: Sean Phillips is Baby Kate's dad, thus kidnapping charges should be dropped

The attorney for Sean Phillips, the man accused of kidnapping Katherine Phillips, also being called Baby Kate, wants the charges against his client dropped.

On June 29, the baby's mother, Ariel Courtland called police saying Phillips drove off with the baby in tow. He had taken a DNA test to determine Baby Kate's paternity and the three were then headed for DNA testing for the child.

Courtland, 19, claimed during the 911 call that Phillips, 21, did not want Baby Kate to be tested, as he did not want to pay child support for another child. The couple has a 3 ˝-year-old daughter together as well.

Case may be thrown out against 'Baby Kate's' dad

Mason County prosecutors are pushing to keep a judge from throwing out the case against the man charged with kidnapping Katherine Phillips.

Sean Phillips, 21, is accused of abducting "Baby Kate," as she is known, on June 29th. That was the day the infant's mother was taking the child in for a paternity test. At the time, Phillips denied he was Kate's father. Testing has since proven he is.

Phillips' lawyer wants the kidnapping charge thrown out, saying it doesn't apply since he is Kate's father.

According to the Muskegon Chronicle, prosecutors argue that because Phillips did not know he was Kate's father at the time of the kidnapping, the charge still applies.

Katherine Phillips is still missing.

Father in missing baby case facing reduced charges

The father of a baby who has been missing since June in western Michigan is facing reduced charges in her disappearance.

A judge on Wednesday dismissed a kidnapping charge filed against 21-year-old Sean Phillips. He's jailed on $250,000 bond and scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of parental kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment.

Phillips now faces up to 15 years in prison instead of a possible life sentence.

Phillips' lawyer argued his client was the father of Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips and couldn't be convicted of kidnapping under state law.

Katherine was 4 1/2 months old when she last was seen June 29 with Phillips. Katherine lived with her mother, Ariel Courtland, at an apartment in Ludington, about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids. Extensive searches haven't turned up the girl.

Volunteers set up website asking 'Where's Kate?'

Volunteers in the search for Katherine Phillips are introducing a new method to attract attention to the case.

Organizers of the "Where's Kate" campaign recently set up a website, where people can post their photos with the phrase "Where's Kate?"

The group wants to compile the photos into a book and present it to Baby Kate if she's ever found.

Katherine Phillips was last seen with her father on June 29th. She would be ten-months-old now.

Her father, Sean Phillips, will go to trial on parental kidnapping charges next month.

'Baby Kate' kidnapping trial of Sean Michael Phillips postponed

The trial for Sean Michael Phillips, accused of kidnapping his still-missing infant daughter "Baby Kate" in Ludington, has been adjourned from Jan. 17.

No new date has been set for the trial.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola announced the postponement Thursday after an inquiry from The Muskegon Chronicle but did not state a reason. He declined to answer questions.

Phillips' attorney, Annette Smedley, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Phillips, 21, of 280 W. Millerton, Victory Township, is charged with one count of unlawful imprisonment, punishable by up to 15 years in prison, and one count of parental kidnapping, punishable by up to a year and a day in jail.

Phillips has been lodged in the Mason County Jail since the day Katherine Shelbie-Elizabeth Phillips, then nearly 5 months, went missing June 29. He is being held in lieu of a $250,000 cash or surety bond. The infant is Phillips' biological child.

A previous kidnapping charge, a life felony, was dismissed earlier by a circuit court judge because Michigan law does not permit that charge against a parent.
