TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - A Riverside County father and teen daughter have been ordered to stand trial in a vigilante attack on a man the girl has accused of rape.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports Judge Michael Rushton ruled Friday that 36-year-old David Ray Mills, his 16-year-old daughter and her friend, 20-year-old Andre Edwin Dickerson will face attempted murder and mayhem charges.

All three have pleaded not guilty to the Jan. 13 attack where investigators say 21-year-old Miguel Esteban Cruz was lured to a park and beaten with a baseball bat.

Cruz says Dickerson beat him with a baseball bat as the girl and her father watched.

Sheriff's officials say Cruz was investigated after the girl's allegations came to light. He was charged in May with sodomy with a minor.
