WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A federal judge has scheduled a September trial for a Canadian man found in Michigan with a 12-year-old Kansas girl he met on the Internet.
Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill of Bewdley, Ontario, has already waived a detention hearing and will remain in custody until his trial. He’s charged with transporting a minor out of state to have sex.
U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten on Wednesday set a Sept. 25 trial date.
Authorities say McGill traveled in late May to the south-central Kansas town of El Dorado to meet the girl. They were found a few days later near Potterville, Mich.
The girl told authorities she went with McGill willingly. Prosecutors say McGill told police he met the girl playing “World of Warcraft” online and loved her.
