JailWICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Sedgwick County judge has bound over for trial four men charged with killing an Arkansas man during an attempted robbery.

The Wichita Eagle reports  the four men — Corey L. Pollard Jr., Dijon L. Thomas, Orville T. Smith and Dallas D. Guy — will each be tried on one count of first-degree felony murder and other charges in the 2013 death of 27-year-old Paul Danny Khmabounheuang.

Judge Stephen Ternes presided over the men’s preliminary hearings Friday and set their jury trials for June 16. The defendants are being held in the Sedgwick County Jail on $500,000 bond.

The victim was in Wichita visiting a relative when he was killed.
