A man accused of stabbing a younger man to death in his Surrey apartment in 2012 has been ordered to stand trial.

William Engebretsen, who is now 55, faces a second-degree murder charge in connection with the Nov. 25, 2012 death of 35-year-old Jeremy McLellan.

Police said Engebretsen lived in the apartment near 95 Avenue and 128 Street with McLellan and McLellan's mother.

On the evening of the incident, Mounties were called to the home to find the victim suffering from stab wounds, which he later succumbed to in hospital.

Engebretsen's murder trial was ordered after a preliminary hearing in Surrey Provincial Court that ended March 11. Evidence from such hearings are under a publication ban and cannot be reported.

The case will now proceed to B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. Engebretsen's next court date is April 10.
