READING, Pa. -

Two cousins accused of shooting and killing two men in Reading will be facing a trial.

Juan Carlos Claudio, 28, and Wilfredo Rodriguez-Claudio, 19, were in court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing and their case was sent on to trial.

Officials say they were charged in connection with the shooting deaths of Geovanie Collazo-Rosa, 23, and Efrain Lopez-Collazo, 51, in the 300 block of Pear street on January 20th.

A third person was wounded.

Authorities say a long-standing feud between the two families led to the shooting.
