Trial date set for LaGrange man accused in death of 2 year old girl

    Marcus Mays is charged with 2nd degree murder in the death of 2-year-old Taylen Allen.

    A LaGrange man charged with murder in the death of a two year old girl last year, will now go to trial in October.

    WTAD reports Marcus Mays was in court yesterday.

    His trial date has been set for October 28th, and while there was no official ruling, the trial will likely take place outside of Lewis County.

    Mays faces several charges, including second degree murder, child abuse, and drug possession in the death of two year old Taylen Allen.

    Mays was arrested last August after Taylen was taken to Blessing Hospital with severe injuries.

    She died five days later at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
