Man to stand trial in killing of girlfriend

POTTSTOWN, Pa. - A man accused of killing his girlfriend was ordered Monday to stand trial on homicide charges.

Edwin Carrero admitted to strangling Alicia Schmidt inside her house on Cherry Street in Pottstown, Montgomery Co., in February, said police, who found her body at the bottom of the basement stairs.

Schmidt's two children, who were in upstairs bedrooms at the time of the killing, were unharmed, police said.

Carrero stole Schmidt's car and used her credit cards on his way to Hollywood, Fla., where he was arrested at a casino a few days a later, police said.
