SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A Springfield teenager will now stand trial in January for the murder of a high school student. James Duke, 19, has been ordered to undergo a mental evaluation.
He's charged with first-degree murder in the death of Kody Ray, 17, a student at Springfield's Hillcrest High School. Ray was shot last March as he stood on the front porch of his home. Another teen is also charged in Ray's murder.
