A preliminary hearing has been continued for a York County man suspected of killing a baby and burying his body.

Ummad Rushdi's hearing was rescheduled for Sept. 9.

Police believe Rushdi, of Windsor Township, took his girlfriend's baby, 7-month-old Hamza Ali, from his parents' home outside Philadelphia two weeks ago.

Investigators said they believe Rushdi killed the baby and buried his body somewhere in York or Lancaster County, but he refuses to tell police where he hid the remains.

Rushdi has been charged with kidnapping and related charges and is in the Delaware County Prison on $750,000 bail.

Prosecutors are pursuing homicide charges against him.

Last week, police called off the active search for the little boy's body.
