A Moon man accused of fatally shooting a McKees Rocks couple will stand trial on homicide charges, a judge ruled today.

Police have said Marcus Lamont Early, 19, told investigators he was looking for drugs at the Railrood Street home of Cardell Gary and Christina Law when he shot them Feb. 7 in their dining room.

District Judge Robert Ravenstahl ruled during a hearing in City Court that Early also will stand trial for carrying a firearm without a license. Ravenstahl threw out a robbery charge.

The bodies of Gary, 24, and Law, 34, were discovered by a cousin of Law. A crying toddler was sitting, unharmed, between them.
