A judge has ruled there is enough evidence against Jerry Nemnich to move forward with a murder trial.
He's the suspect in the 1975 cold case murders of a Grand Junction woman and her daughter, Linda and Kelley Benson.
The preliminary hearing held Wednesday included evidence from original investigators on the case and current investigators who made the connection to Nemnich with the help of advancements in DNA technology. A DNA expert testified in court there is a 'one in one quintillion' chance the DNA found at the scene isn't Nemnich's.
Nemnich is due back in court September 30 at 8:30 a.m.
The arrest affidavit has been unsealed and more details are being released. 11 News will have the latest on this breaking story and tonight on 11 News at 5:30 and 10 p.m.
