Eddie Ricky Nealy will stand trial in the 1985 slaying of a Fresno teenager and the sexual assault of a 32-year-old woman in September 2001, a Fresno County Superior Court judge decided Wednesday.

Judge Wayne Ellison made his decision after hearing two days of testimony in Nealy’s preliminary hearing, in which a state crime lab expert testified that Nealy’s DNA matched the DNA found on the swab taken from the body of 14-year-old Jody Lynn Wolfe.
