A judge has ruled there is enough evidence to hold a man for the murder of a Great Bend teenager.

Experts today testified cell phone records tie the man to the disappearance and death of a Great Bend teenager.

Adam Joseph Longoria of Great Bend is charged with capital murder and criminal sodomy in the August killing of Alicia DeBolt.

A KBI expert testified Longoria sent text messages to DeBolt the night she disappeared. One of the text messages asked if DeBolt wanted to go out and party with Longoria. The reply from DeBolt's phone was yes, and directed Longoria to pick DeBolt up at her house. A text from Longoria's phone indicated he arrived to pick her up at 11:02.

The last text from DeBolt's phone was sent at 11:40. It came from the asphalt plant where her body was found.

A woman who was living with Longoria testified he came home
smelling of gasoline and washed the clothes he had worn.

Judge Hannelore Kitts determined there's enough evidence to proceed to trial. She entered not guilty pleas for Longoria. Prosecutors told the court they will seek the death penalty if Longoria is found guilty of Capital Murder.
