HOLTON, Kan. (AP) - A judge has found sufficient evidence for a northeast Kansas man to stand trial on charges of sexually assaulting five women and a teenager.

The final preliminary hearing for Jacob Ewing ended Thursday with Jackson County Judge Norbert Marek finding probable cause to bind the 21-year-old over for trial on charges of sodomizing a 13-year-old girl in a rural cemetery. The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/2dOChT5 ) reports that the Marek previously ordered Ewing to stand trial in the other cases.

During the hearing, Ewing pleaded not guilty to charges in several cases brought against him. Marek also set trial dates.

County Attorney Shawna Miller alleges that Ewing took the girl for a car ride that ended in the assault. The defense argued that the girl initially testified that nothing had happened.
