WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita man accused in the stray-bullet killing of a sleeping 8-year-old girl has been ordered to stand trial.

Twenty-four-year-old Zachary Gaston is charged with first-degree murder in the Sept. 4 killing of Kimbra Moore at a mobile home park. KFDI-FM reports (http://bit.ly/UgVzwK ) a Sedgwick County judge ordered Gaston to go on trial following a preliminary hearing Tuesday.

Police have said the gunfire followed an early-morning dispute in a nearby parking lot between a group of four men and a man in a stolen car. Gaston is accused of shooting at the car while chasing it into the mobile home park.

A police officer testified Tuesday about noticing a bullet hole in the side of Kimbra's mobile home and going inside to find the little girl dead in her bed.
