HAZEL PARK, MI (AP) -

A Detroit-area man has been ordered to stand trial in the strangling death and mutilation of a 21-year-old woman.

The Detroit News reports that 24-year-old Jordan McClanahan of Hazel Park appeared Friday in Hazel Park District Court.

He is charged with first-degree murder and mutilation of a body. Jessica White's body was found in May in the attic of a home where McClanahan lived.

White, of Troy, was reported missing the previous month. She was strangled with a belt and her fingertips were cut off.

A Sept. 6 hearing has been scheduled for McClanahan in Oakland County Circuit Court.
