A man accused of a double homicide in Monroe County will stand trial.

POCONO SUMMIT, Pa. -

A man accused of a double homicide in Monroe County will stand trial.

Charges against Luis Vasquez, of Pocono Summit, were held for court Wednesday during his preliminary hearing.

Police say Vasquez shot and killed two Stroud Township men back in August at Coolbaugh Township Park.

Police say Vasquez owed one of the men a large sum of money and that's why the three of them were there.
