STROUDSBURG, Pa. -

A Stroudsburg man who's accused of stabbing and killing a pregnant woman and her unborn child is heading to trial.

A judge ruled Monday that Ruben Velazquez will stand trial on homicide charges.

He's accused of stabbing Krystle Vasquez to death in February, at a home in Broad Street in Stroudsburg.

Vasquez was eight months pregnant at the time.
