DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Dodge City man has been bound over for trial in the 2008 death of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1eWED9G ) a Ford County judge ordered Brock Cunningham to be tried on charges of first-degree murder and child abuse.

The death of Natalie Pickle was ruled a homicide, but Cunningham was not arrested until earlier this year. An autopsy showed the toddler died of blunt trauma to the head.

Cunningham testified at his preliminary hearing Tuesday that Natalie was jumping on a bed at his home and fell off. And Cunningham's mother testified the girl had fallen down the stairs a day earlier at a motel where she worked.

But doctors testified Natalie had severe brain injuries that were not consistent with a fall or minor trauma.
