INDIANA, Pa. A judge on Wednesday ordered a state trooper accused of cutting the throat of his girlfriend's estranged husband and letting him bleed to death to stand trial on a homicide charge.

Prosecutors say Trooper Kevin Foley killed John Yelenic, a dentist, at his home in Blairsville in April 2006. Yelenic was divorcing his wife, Michele, who was dating and living with Foley at the time of Yelenic's death.
