Thomas Haining appeared at the High Court in Glasgow accused of murdering Mikayla Haining.
A man is to stand trial charged with murdering his 23-day-old baby daughter.
Thomas Haining was back at the High Court in Glasgow accused of killing Mikayla Haining in Inverness.
The 20-year-old is accused of repeatedly inflicting blunt force trauma to the head and body of the child.
He allegedly assaulted Mikayla between the day she was born on May 17, 2017, and the day she died - June 8 of that year.
Shelagh McCall QC, defending, said she was ready for a trial to be set.
The advocate lodged a special defence of incrimination on Haining's behalf.
She said: "This is a complex case."
Judge Johanna Johnston QC set a trial for September 5 in Edinburgh.
The case could last ten days.
A further hearing will take place before then in July.
Bail for Haining, of Grantown on Spey in Moray, was continued meantime.
