RIVERSIDE, Calif. — A University of California, Riverside student has been ordered to stand trial on charges that she plotted to have two ex-boyfriends killed.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/1b7eB1e) 22-year-old Barbara Wu was in court Monday. She'll face trial for solicitation of murder, stalking, vandalism and threatening a witness.

Prosecutors contend Wu tried to arrange the killings of two exes. In one case, she allegedly asked a current boyfriend to kidnap a former boyfriend, break his legs with a bat, kill him and dispose of the body.

Defense attorney Rajan Maline says Wu was just spouting off and never seriously intended to carry out the plans.

But Superior Court Judge Charles Koosed says he considers her behavior serious.

Wu remains jailed on $500,000 bail.
