A Garden City man will be arraigned March 31 in the death of a teenager whose body was found in a Dumpster.
Eighteen-year-old Joaquin De Anda was bound over for trial Wednesday after a two-day preliminary hearing in Finney County Court.
Anda is charged with first-degree murder, rape, aggravated and criminal sodomy in the death of 16-year-old Julia Quintana, of Deerfield. Her body was found in a Dumpster on Dec. 16, 2008, behind a Garden City home where De Anda used to live.
De Anda was 17 when the crime occurred but Judge Michael L. Quint ruled that he would be tried as an adult.
