A jury in Detroit is set to begin deliberations Thursday in the murder trial of a man accused of fatally beating his 2-year-old daughter for wetting herself.

The body of Bianca Jones has never been found, but prosecutors say D'Andre Lane used a stick wrapped in a towel to beat Bianca to death Dec. 2, 2011, before disposing of her body.

Lane says carjackers took his vehicle with his daughter inside. Lawyers gave their closing arguments Wednesday, and Wayne County Circuit Judge Vonda Evans scheduled jury instructions for Thursday morning.

Evans rejected defense lawyer Terry Johnson's request that she issue a directed verdict of acquittal.
