LAS VEGAS (AP) - Two men accused of posing as Mormon missionaries and saying they wanted to talk about religion before pistol-whipping and robbing a Las Vegas man in his home have been ordered to stand trial.

Las Vegas Township Judge Janiece Marshall ruled Friday there was sufficient evidence to try 25-year-old Robert Estall and 28-year-old Abraham Austin Jr. in Clark County District Court.

The men are accused of dressing as Mormon missionaries and knocking on Terence Delucia's door on June 27 before muscling their way into the home and committing the robbery. They're charged with robbery, kidnapping, battery and burglary.

The men made off with about $3,000 in cash and an ounce of marijuana.

Defense attorneys called no witnesses during the preliminary hearing that ended Friday.

The men are scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 24 in district court.
