ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A trial has been set for an Albuquerque man indicted for shooting his infant daughter in the head after accusing his daughter's mother of seeing another man.

Christopher Rains is scheduled to face trial beginning May 20 in Albuquerque District Court.

Police say Rains, who was 22-years-old at the time, pointed a pistol at the 9-month-old baby's head and pulled the trigger following an argument with then 18-year-old Ashley Trujillo in 2009.

Authorities say Rains then allegedly asked Trujillo whether her seeing another man was worth it.

He was indicted on nine felony counts including first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.
