SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) -- A man accused of starting a chase that ended in a Michigan state trooper's death has been ordered to stand trial.
Prosecutors have charged 23-year-old Carl Entrekin with first-degree fleeing from a police officer causing death.
After a preliminary hearing Wednesday, a judge bound Entrekin over for trial in Saginaw County Circuit Court.
He's accused of fleeing police in an April 6 chase that resulted in the death of 43-year-old Michigan State Trooper Jeffrey Werda.
Werda responded to a call for assistance from a sheriff's deputy in pursuit of a fleeing motorist. Werda apparently lost control of his cruiser in Taymouth Township, about 70 miles northwest of Detroit. The vehicle rolled at least twice and ejected him.
