SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) — Newlyweds accused of luring a stranger through a Craigslist ad, stabbing him to death and dumping his body in an alley have been ordered to stand trial on charges including homicide, conspiracy and robbery.

Eighteen-year-old Miranda Barbour and 22-year-old Elytte Barbour pleaded not guilty at separate hearings Friday in the central Pennsylvania city of Sunbury.

They're being held without bail in the Nov. 11 death of 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara of Port Trevorton.

Police say Elytte Barbour told investigators that they wanted to kill someone together.

The couple, who were married in North Carolina and moved to Pennsylvania during the three weeks leading up to the crime, told police Miranda stabbed LaFerrara in the front seat of her car while her husband held a cord around his neck.
