UPDATED WITH VIDEO A man accused of murdering a 3-year-old boy made a brief court appearance by video Wednesday.

Michael Milner, 24, entered not guilty pleas to murder, child endangering and felonious assault in Sandusky Municipal Court.

Milner is accused of fatally injuring 3-year-old Owen Barker on July 30, after the boy’s mother left her son in Milner’s care when she went to work.

Erie County prosecutor Kevin Baxter said he’ll likely call a special grand jury session next week for the case.
