MARSHALL, Mo. (AP) _ A man charged with killing four people at a wildlife area’s firing range last month was bound over for trial Thursday after a hearing before Associate Circuit Judge Rick Wilson.

Donald Reese, 43, of Marshall, is to be arraigned Oct. 9 in Circuit Court.

Saline County Prosecutor Bill Peterson offered testimony from five witnesses, including Lafayette County Sheriff Gene Darnell, who said Reese gave him a statement indicating that he killed the men.

Reese is charged with four counts of first-degree murder, four of armed criminal action and three of first-degree robbery in the Sept. 9 violence at the Marshall Junction Wildlife Area.

The victims were James R. Watson, 54, safety coordinator of the Missouri Department of Conservation; Christopher Griffith, 38, a physical therapist; Donald A. Vanderlinden, 64, a retired railroad worker, and his brother-in-law, John C. Burford, 57, a plumber.
