Trial to begin for man accused in toddler's death

The trial is set to begin for a man accused along with his girlfriend in beating the woman's 13-month-old daughter to death with a hammer in what authorities say was called an exorcism by the couple. The capital murder trial for Blaine Milam of Rusk County was set to begin Monday about 160 miles south in the Houston suburb of Conroe. A judge moved the trial out of east Texas because of publicity in the case.

If convicted in the December 2008 death of Amora Bain Carson, Milam faces the death penalty.

Milam's girlfriend is awaiting trial. Authorities say Milam and his girlfriend told law enforcement officials they were trying to get rid of "the demons" in the child.
