(KNZA)--Three Atchison men, accused of participating in a fatal Doniphan County fight last September, will stand trial.

Following testimony at their preliminary hearing Thursday, a judge found sufficient evidence for 44-year-old Scott Vandeloo, 30-year-old Matthew Scherer and 23-year-old Brian Spilman, Jr. to each be bound over on a charge of second-degree murder.

Arraignment for Spilman and Vandeloo was set for February 5 in Doniphan County District Court. Arraignment for Scherer was scheduled for February 26.

Amended complaints were filed late last month against the trio. All three had originally been charged with aggravated battery.

The charges stem from an early morning, September 22, 2019 fight that authorities say occurred during a party held at 159 Monument Road in rural Doniphan County.

42-year-old Jason Pantle, of Cummings, died September 29 of what investigators called serious head injuries at a Kansas City Hospital.

Spilman remains in the Doniphan County Jail on a $150,000 bond, while Scherer and Vandeloo are currently free on bond.
