WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge has scheduled a September trial for a Canadian man found in Michigan with a 12-year-old Kansas girl he met on the Internet.

Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill of Bewdley, Ontario, has already waived a detention hearing and will remain in custody until his trial. He's charged with transporting a minor out of state to have sex.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten on Wednesday set a Sept. 25 trial date.

Authorities say McGill traveled in late May to the south-central Kansas town of El Dorado (doh-RAY'-doh) to meet the girl. They were found a few days later near Potterville, Mich.

The girl told authorities she went with McGill willingly. Prosecutors say McGill told police he met the girl playing ``World of Warcraft'' online and loved her.
