The father of baby Elaina Steinfurth, whose remains were found in an east Toledo garage, made a court appearance Monday on unrelated domestic abuse and assault charges.

He is scheduled to appear in court on March 31.

Steinfurth had been widely reported in the news last year after his daughter went missing in June.
