Judge orders 3 to trial in death of Kansas man

SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) _ A Missouri judge has ruled there’s enough evidence to try three people in the death of a 66-year-old Kansas man.

KFVS reports (http://j.mp/2evgiSb) that Larenzle Coleman, of Oakfield, Tennessee; and Elsie Hamilton and Ronnie Robinson, of North Little Rock, Arkansas, are charged in the June death of Larry Weaver of Pittsburg, Kansas.

Weaver’s body was found in a field in southeast Missouri on July 1. An autopsy shows he’d been tied up and beaten.

After a recent preliminary hearing, New Madrid County Associate Judge Joshua Underwood ruled there is sufficient evidence for the three defendants to be bound over for trial.

The judge set Nov. 8 as the arraignment date for Coleman. Robinson and Hamilton will be arraigned Nov. 22.
