BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) -- A man accused of shooting and wounding his son has been ordered to stand trial on a charge of attempted murder.

A status conference was set for August 15th for 50-year-old Michael J. Bradford of Corinne.

Following a preliminary hearing in Brigham City yesterday, Judge Ben Hadfield ruled there was enough evidence to proceed to trial.

Bradford is accused of shooting his 20-year-old son in the abdomen during an April ninth dispute that also involved Bradford's wife. The younger man was hospitalized for over a week.

Bradford also is charged with assault on a prisoner and assault on a police officer. He allegedly struck an officer following the shooting.

Bail initially was set at 100 thousand dollars, but was raised to 250 thousand dollars after silencers and armor-piercing bullets allegedly were found at Bradford's home. Charges are still pending on the weapons.
