A Green Bay man has been ordered to stand trial in the stabbing death of his girlfriend.

A court commissioner in Brown County determined Wednesday there's enough evidence to send 50-year-old Michael Whitmire to trial on a charge of first-degree intentional homicide. He's accused of killing 45-year-old Ouida Wright at her Green Bay home last month.

WLUK-TV reported Whitmire is due back in court in August.
