WALLA WALLA -- A man accused of sexually assaulting two underage girls at the apartment where he lived New Year's Day is scheduled for trial April 19.

Phillip S. Ingram, 18, pleaded innocent Monday afternoon in Superior Court to charges of second-degree rape of a child, third-degree child molestation and furnishing liquor to minors.

Police said Ingram had sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl and sexual contact with a 14-year-old in separate occasions in his bedroom at 150 S. Wilbur Ave., No. 58, after what is described as an "alcohol-fueled" New Year's Eve party also attended by other teens.

Police were contacted Jan. 3 after the 14-year-old told her mother.

Ingram was arrested Jan. 7 following an interview by a police detective and booked into the County Jail. He was released Jan. 11 to live at 62 Talon Loop pending further court proceedings.
