A trial date has been set for a South Bend father accused of killing his infant daughter.

Bryan Alexander Michel, 22, is scheduled to go to trial on a charge of neglect of a dependent resulting in death on Nov. 12, according to a news release from the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office.

Michel is being held at the St. Joseph County Jail. His bond is set at $1 million.

South Bend police and medics were called to a home in the 1400 block of East Dubail Street around 3 p.m. on July 10 for a report of a 4-month-old child who was not breathing.

The child, Halo Stutzman, was taken to Memorial Hospital, where she died two days later.

The baby suffered skull fractures, massive brain injury, bleeding behind the eyes and bruising on her body, according to court documents filed in the case.

The St. Joseph County Coroner ruled the death a homicide.

The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit and St. Joseph County Special Victims Unit continue to investigate the incident, according to the prosecutor’s office.
