PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Two men convicted in the death of a 4-year-old girl hit by a carjacked sport utility vehicle in Philadelphia two decades ago have been ordered to stand trial in the recent death of her younger sister.

Carlos Colon and Thomas Reyes were convicted of murder in the death of Lucretia Davis in the July 1993 crash. They’re serving sentences of more than 25 years in prison.

Colon and Reyes now are charged with murder in the 2013 dehydration death of Delorian Davis, who was 18 months old at the time of the crash and ended up in a coma.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1MijmqT) reports defense attorneys protested during Tuesday’s preliminary hearing there’s no way to link the dehydration that killed Delorian Davis to the crash. Prosecutors argued a jury should decide.
