St. Clair County, Ill (KSDK) -- The trial of a man accused of critically beating the daughter of his girlfriend is scheduled to begin on September 12 in St. Clair County.
The date for Kraig Monroe to stand trial was scheduled during a hearing on Wednesday.
Monroe faces felony charges. Investigators said he was babysitting Amanda Runyon when he beat her over a three day period. Her injuries were so severe that doctors had to remove a quarter of her intestines.
Monroe pleaded not guilty and his family insists he is innocent.
He posted bond and was released from prison in May. He has been electronically monitored and was ordered to have no contract with Runyon.
