BLACK FOREST, Colo. -

There is enough evidence against a man accused of killing two people, including his wife, for the case to go to trial, a judge ruled Monday.

There was a preliminary hearing Monday to decide whether there is enough evidence in the case against Kenneth Lankford. The 46-year-old is accused of killing his wife Terry Lankford and killing Carol Fowler. He is also accused of shooting Fowler's husband Tom.

On Monday, the judge heard testimony from deputies and detectives who responded to the shootings in Black Forest last November. Several testified that Lankford told them he shot all three people.

Lankford faces several charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder in the second degree, first-degree assault, second-degree burglary, aggravated motor vehicle theft, among others.
