Couple Accused Of Murdering A 10 year-old Girl Returns To Court

A trial date is now set for a Clark County couple accused of killing a 10-year-old girl.

On Thursday, a judge set a May 5th trial date for Patrick and Joy Watkins.

Police say the two killed Patrick's daughter, Michaela, last year by beating her then burning her body.

The Watkins' say Michaela's death was an accident.

They claim she fell down some stairs, and burned herself in a bathtub.
