Man accused of using MMA move to kill friend headed to trial
A New Jersey man accused of strangling his friend during a fight in Monroe County is now facing a homicide trial.
Charles Derr of East Hanover was in court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.
A homicide charge against Derr was held for court but drug charges were dropped.
Police say Derr killed his friend, Matthew Stilwell, by the use of a martial arts move known as "a rear naked choke hold."
