November trial date set for Whitesboro teen accused of murdering two year old

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A trial date has been set for the Whitesboro teen accused of murdering a two-year old.

The case against Alec Champagne will go to trial on November 15 in Oneida County Court.

Champagne is accused of sexually assaulting and murdering the two year old Melissa Calhoun while he was babysitting her.

Champagne's attorney argued last month to get the case heard in Family Court, which would have lighter penalties.

The judge denied the request on Monday, which means the case will now go before a jury.
