BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A Boulder judge says two men can face trial in the drug-related killing of a Colorado man whose body was found in Wyoming.

The Daily Camera ( ) reported Tuesday that Judge Andrew Macdonald ruled that’s there’s enough evidence to try 38-year-old Daniel Ortiz and 26-year-old Moises Mendez in Nathaniel Tallman’s death.

A third man, 58-year-old Russell Britton, pleaded guilty in June to being an accessory to murder and robbery and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Tallman disappeared on Jan. 21. Investigators say he left to meet Britton that day to “conduct a marijuana transaction” but that Britton said the 25-year-old never showed up.

His body was found March 13 along a highway near Lusk, Wyoming. Detectives say they found blood in Britton’s van that matched Tallman’s DNA.
