A Sidney man accused of raping a 4-year-old girl he was babysitting has been found competent to stand trial.

A judge made the decision in court Monday morning.

According to officials, Eric Bard, 23, took pictures of the attack.

He was arrested in July 2012 after police reportedly found a memory card at his home with images of abuse.

He pleaded not guilty in April.
