John Moniz has been ordered to stand trial in district court for the murder of Delbert Freemont Jr.
A judge decided Monday that there's enough evidence for his case to move forward.
Police say Moniz strangled Freemont and then cut up his body. The remains were then dumped in a ravine just north of the Douglas County line. They were found in early December.
Investigators say Moniz and his girlfriend had been living with Freemont until shortly before his death.
