    PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he robbed and killed two sisters of an Iowa state lawmaker.

    A judge made the ruling Friday after a preliminary hearing for 43-year-old Allen Darell Wade.

    Police have yet to detail a motive for the killings of Susan and Sarah Wolfe. They were found dead Feb. 7 after not showing up for work.

    Wade surrendered last month on charges including criminal homicide based largely on surveillance video. The footage showed him using the women's bank cards hours after they were known to have been alive.

    The women were neighbors of Wade and sisters of Democratic Rep. Mary Wolfe, of Clinton, Iowa. They were each found shot once in the head.

    Wade has said he's being framed.
