PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh homicide detective accused of taking an envelope of cash left on a convenience store counter last summer has been ordered to stand trial on one count of theft, but a second count has been dismissed.

Allegheny County District Judge Robert Ravenstahl dropped a charge of theft by unlawful taking against 41-year-old Michael Reddy during a preliminary hearing Monday but upheld a charge of theft of property lost or mislaid.

Reddy said he planned to ask a supervisor what to do with the $220 after he and his partner returned from overtime work in another county.

Prosecutors asked defense attorney James Wymard whether Reddy would consider a plea to a summary count, but Wymard said his client wasn’t interested because he feels he did nothing wrong.
