Canadian man who picked up Kan. girl due in court

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Canadian man who was found last year in Michigan with a 12-year-old Kansas girl he met on the Internet is expected to change his plea.

Court records list a change-of-plea hearing Wednesday in federal court in Wichita for Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill, of Bewdley, Ontario.

McGill is charged with one count of transporting a minor out of state to have sex.

Authorities say McGill traveled in May 2012 to El Dorado (doh-RAY'-doh) to meet the girl. They were found a few days later near Potterville, Mich.

The girl told authorities at the time she went with McGill willingly. Prosecutors say McGill told police he met the girl playing "World of Warcraft" online and loved her.

McGill pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in July.
