A maintenance worker has denied a manslaughter charge in relation to the death of a two-year-old girl who fell 60ft (18m) from a balcony last year.
Ryaheen Banimuslem died after the fall at North Bank apartments in Sheffield.
Robert Warner, 44, denies manslaughter by gross negligence. He will face trial at Sheffield Crown Court in January.
It is alleged he failed to replace a glass panel he removed from a barrier on the balcony or take steps to ensure Ryaheen's safety after it was removed.
Mr Warner, of Shirehall Crescent, Shiregreen, Sheffield, was released on unconditional bail ahead of his next appearance.
