Joshua Kalili at Oahu Community Correctional Center

An Oahu man accused in the murder of a three-year-old girl pleaded not guilty Thursday.

On May 21, Joshua Kalili, 25, was indicted for second-degree murder and abuse of a household member.

Last October, Styzilee Reyes-Butay was taken to Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center by a family member.

The medical examiner’s office said the girl died from blunt impact to the abdomen and internal bleeding. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Kalili remains in custody at Oahu Community Correctional Center unable to post $500,000 bail.

His trial is set for July.
