HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — Two men charged with murder for 11 deaths linked to a meningitis outbreak have been ordered to trial by a Michigan judge.

Barry Cadden was co-founder of New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts and Glenn Chin was a pharmacist.

The pharmacy sent tainted steroids to clinics in Michigan and elsewhere.

Livingston County Judge Shauna Murphy found enough evidence to send Cadden and Chin to trial on second-degree murder charges in 11 Michigan deaths.

Cadden and Chin are serving federal prison sentences for convictions in a separate case related to the 2012 outbreak.
