KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Missouri man has been ordered to stand trial in last year's killing of a well-known dog breeder from Kansas City, Kan.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1fzSKQo ) a Wyandotte County judge on Wednesday bound 50-year-old Darrell Lee Broxton over for trial on charges of first-degree murder, theft and auto burglary.

Broxton, of Kansas City, Mo., is accused in the December 2012 death of 69-year-old Peter Belmont Jr. in the older man's Kansas City, Kan., home. A doctor testified during the preliminary hearing that Belmont had been attacked with a sharp implement, such as a hatchet.

Belmont raised Afghan hounds and was internationally known on the dog show circuit as a judge and handler. He had also taught art in the city's public schools for many years before retiring.
