MANHATTAN, Kan. A former Fort Riley soldier has been ordered to stand trial for the New Year's Day killing of a Kansas National Guard member outside a Manhattan motorcycle club.

KMAN-AM">reports a Riley County judge found probable cause Wednesday to try 26-year-old Daniel Parker for first-degree murder. He'll be arraigned Nov. 26.

Parker is accused in the drive-by shooting of 21-year-old Frederick Beverly early on Jan. 1 outside the "Assassin Street Rydaz" club in Manhattan. Parker was serving at the time with the First Infantry Division with the rank of specialist.

Investigators say Parker had clashed with other members of the motorcycle club, of which Beverly was a member.

Parker's lawyer argued for dropping the charges, saying a witness to the shooting was unable to identify Parker as the gunman.
