EVERETT — The trial for a Texas man accused of drowning his 6-year-old nephew in his Lynnwood home is scheduled for January.

The (Everett) Herald reports 19-year-old Andrew Henckel’s lawyer Michele Shaw entered a not-guilty plea on behalf of her client Tuesday.

According to court documents, Henckel had been baby-sitting his nephew Dayvid Pakko on Oct. 16, the day he was reported missing.

Dayvid’s body was found in a trash bin near his family’s apartment the next day.
