SAN DIEGO (AP) - A house painter has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he shot and wounded a San Diego TV sports anchor.

The San Diego Union-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1AL7DAh ) says a judge ruled Wednesday there’s enough evidence to try Mike Montana.

The El Cajon man has pleaded not guilty to premeditated attempted murder and other charges. He could face 38 years to life in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say that in February, Montana shot KFMB-TV anchor Kyle Kraska six times.

The sportscaster testified Tuesday that he hired Kraska last fall to paint his Scripps Ranch home but the work was shoddy and he refused to pay him the full $3,000.

Kraska was shot as he sat in his car in the driveway but returned to work a month later.
