A man accused of killing a charter school student is heading to trial.

A preliminary hearing was held Thursday for Jose Reyes-Diaz.

All of the charges against him were held for court, except for one.


Reyes-Diaz is accused of shooting and killing Ramon Rosario Evangelista, 21, outside the A-Town Cafe in the area of 10th and Elm streets in Reading last November.

Two other people were also shot.

Reyes-Diaz was arrested in Rhode Island in December.

He's facing a number of charges, including first and third-degree murder, attempted murder and aggravated assault.
