OGDEN -- A Weber County judge has ruled there is enough evidence to try Robert McCullar for murder.

During a hearing last week, a witness testified McCullar confessed to fellow jail inmates that he killed Filiberto Bedolla Robles because the man spit on him.

Prosecutors say McCullar also was caught admitting to the stabbing over the phone during a police sting operation.

The defense claims Robles was killed by his girlfriend.

The victim's brother found his body in their Ogden apartment last December.

The judge ordered McCullar to stand trial for first-degree felony murder. A trial date could be set during a hearing on May 12.
