GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A judge has ordered three men to stand trial in a marijuana robbery and shooting attack at a Grand Rapids home one year ago that killed one man and wounded three other people.

Grand Rapids District Judge David Buter ruled Friday that there's enough evidence to try 30-year-old Tory J. Overstreet and 24-year-olds Craig M. Hureskin and Jeffrey Slaughter-Butler on first-degree murder charges.

They're accused in the Dec. 29, 2012, slaying of 34-year-old Jason Cherry at his parents' home.

Last month, 28-year-old Tamaine Foster received the mandatory sentence of life without parole for first-degree murder in the case. Twenty-five-year-old Isiah J. Latham has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the case and has testified against the three new defendants.
