LINCOLN, Kan. (AP) -- A judge has ruled there's enough evidence to try the 33-year-old son of a Kansas sheriff on second-degree murder charges.

The Salina Journal reports that Lincoln County Judge Debra Wright ruled Thursday that Scott Weigel will stand trial for second-degree murder in the Sept. 9 shooting death of 21-year-old Keith Ancell of Lincoln. Weigel is being held on $750,000 bond.

Weigel is the son of Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Weigel.

Wright scheduled Scott Weigel's trial for Jan. 6.

Weigel's lawyer, Roger Struble, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
