HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Attorneys for a man accused of fatally beating his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter want charges against him dropped because they say his constitutional rights were violated when attorney-client phone calls at a southwest Ohio jail were recorded.
Attorneys for 26-year-old Bradley Young filed the motion Monday in a Hamilton court to drop charges of murder, felony endangering children and involuntary manslaughter.
Butler County Prosecutor Mike Gmoser (MOH’-zur) argues there’s no indication of any wrong-doing in the case. Gmoser says no one in his office listened to the calls or even knew they existed prior to the motion.
Young has pleaded not guilty to all charges in the December death of Kinsley Kinner. His trial is scheduled to begin Monday.
A hearing on the defense motion is set for Friday.
