MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas man accused in connection with the fatal stabbing of a former Oregon resident has been ordered to stand trial.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1Q34CjV ) reports that 46-year-old Samuel Darrah was ordered Wednesday to stand trial. He is charged with first-degree murder and criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in the 2014 death of 39-year-old James Croft. It is unclear if Darrah has an attorney.

Authorities say Croft’s body was found in a car in a ditch near Galva, 10 miles east of McPherson. Croft lived in Portland, Oregon, before moving to Kansas.

Thirty-two-year-old Clinton Bascue was sentenced to life in prison after pleading no contest to first-degree murder in the case. Another defendant was charged last year with felony murder in connection to Croft’s death.
