An Eaton County judge has ruled they will stand trial for the murder of an elderly man last July.

Seventy-eight year-old John Abraham was found dead in his Delta Township home.

Police say Andrew Johnson and Dymond Squires broke in, hit him in the head with a hammer, and stabbed him with a knife before stealing money out of his safe.

The pair is behind bars on a $10 million bond.

Their next hearing is scheduled for next month.
