LOS ANGELES (AP) - Imprisoned former Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano and another man have been ordered to stand trial on felony charges in Los Angeles.
Superior Court Judge William Pounders made the ruling Tuesday following a daylong preliminary hearing.
Prosecutors allege Pellicano hired Alexander Proctor between April and June 2002 to intimidate then-Los Angeles Times reporter Anita Busch "to cause her to fear for her life."
The criminal complaint alleges Proctor went to Busch's Los Angeles County home and placed a dead fish with a rose in its mouth on the windshield of her car.
At the time, Busch was writing about the alleged financial troubles of Pellicano client, Hollywood superagent Michael Ovitz.
Pellicano is already serving 15 years for illegally wiretapping people to get information.
