LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The case of two men charged with killing a University of Kentucky student during a robbery last month has been bound over to a grand jury.

Fayette County District Judge Megan Lake Thornton heard evidence during a preliminary hearing Thursday. A third person charged in the case is 17 years old, and juvenile cases are closed to the public.

Charged with murder and robbery in the April 17 death of Jonathan Krueger are 18-year-old Justin D. Smith and 20-year-old Efrain Diaz. Smith and Diaz have pleaded not guilty.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/1IlHAQH ) reported that Lexington police Detective Reed Bowles testified Thursday that Diaz and Smith told police they think the juvenile shot Krueger.

Bowles said Krueger and a companion who managed to get away tried to resist their assailants.
