ADA, Okla. (AP) -- A district judge orders a man to stand trial for murder in the case of a 16-year-old Ada girl who was kidnapped and killed in a murder-suicide.

Faye Francis Sliger is charged with first-degree murder after the death of Caitlin Wooten. His preliminary hearing was held yesterday in a Pontotoc County courtroom. He's due back in court January 10th, when a trial date likely will be set.

Sliger is accused of helping Jerry Don Savage kidnap Wooten in September. Police say Savage shot Wooten in the head then killed himself in the woods behind Sliger's home southwest of Ada. Wooten was the daughter of Savage's ex-girlfriend.

Prosecutors say Sliger is charged with first-degree murder because he helped Savage kidnap and kill Wooten.
