HONESDALE, Pa. (AP) - A northeastern Pennsylvania man has been ordered to stand trial in the shooting death of his older brother.

Thirty-year-old Antonio Cilino of Hawley is charged in Wayne County in the Sept. 2 death of 40-year-old Joseph Cilino of Honesdale.

State police said the defendant saw the victim in a car with his ex-girlfriend and the defendant’s 1-year-old child. Police allege that he followed the vehicle and a confrontation ensued at a driveway in Damascus Township during which the victim was shot in the chest. Police said the woman, who had a protection-from-abuse order against the defendant, drove away with the child.

The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (https://bit.ly/2eH7552 ) reports that a district judge found sufficient evidence during a hearing Tuesday to send the case to county court.
