OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- A northeastern Kansas man has been ordered to stand trial for last year's killings of his 24-year-old girlfriend and the couple's baby daughter.

Thirty-two-year-old Adam C. Davis, of Olathe, is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Amber Searles and 4-month-old Kyra Searles-Davis.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/LyCKVd ) that a Johnson County District Court judge this week scheduled the trial for Sept. 17 -- one year and one day after the victims were found dead at an Olathe home.

Investigators said Amber Searles appeared to have been struck on the head and strangled. Police located the baby's body inside a dog cage in the home's garage. An autopsy found that she appeared to be have been suffocated.

Davis has pleaded not guilty.
