A man charged with killing a teenager in Chester County is heading to trial.

All charges were held for court Thursday during a preliminary hearing for Shakeem Carter.

Investigators say he stabbed Kevin Allen, 17, to death last month.

They say Carter then used cooking oil to set the body on fire.

Allen's body was found inside his father's apartment in North Coventry Township.

Investigators say the motive was money.
