(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A judge says a man will stand trial for the murder of another man he met through a phone dating service.
Sixty-nine-year old Leo Anderson was found dead in his basement apartment in September. Police later arrested 40-year old Ira Eugene Hensley in Las Vegas who was found driving Anderson's truck.
Police believe Hensley met Anderson through a telephone dating service. They say Anderson left a message for Hensley, then picked him up and took him back to his home.
Prosecutors say Hensley bound Anderson's wrists, wrapped his head, neck and mouth with a telephone cord, then dealt him a fatal blow to the head.
There's no word yet on Hensley's next court date.
