A Lexington man, accused of raping and killing a toddler, was back in court on Friday.
18-year old Brian Crabtree stands charged with murder, rape, sodomy and sexual abuse.
Police say he attacked two-year-old Katelynn Stinnett inside an apartment on Cummins Court in November, while babysitting the child.
On Friday, the commonwealth's attorney, Ray Larson, pushed to set a trial date late this year. The defense says they won't be ready.
The judge did not rule on the motion.
Crabtree has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
