LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- A rural Leavenworth man will stand trial for second-degree murder in the shooting death of another man at his home.

Forty-eight-year-old Jeffery Sifford on Wednesday was found competent to stand trial for the death of 58-year-old Richard E. Luse, of rural Easton.

Luse was shot last December in a travel trailer at Sifford's home. He died later at a hospital.

The Leavenworth Times reports (http://bit.ly/1jNcN4h ) a preliminary hearing was scheduled for March 7.

Sifford remains jailed in Leavenworth County on $250,000 bail.
