Kansas judge orders man to stand trial in student’s death

PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — A man has been ordered to stand trial in the 2014 shooting death of a Pittsburg State University student.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports that Bryan Bridges was ordered Thursday to stand trial for the murder of Taylor Thomas, a 20-year-old junior when he was killed in October 2014. Authorities say he was killed during a robbery.

District Court Judge Kurtis I. Loy bound Bridges over for trial on several charges, including first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping. The trial has been scheduled to begin Nov. 28.

Three other men have entered pleas in the case.
