July 31, 2012


— The man accused of breaking into at Topeka television station and injuring four employees will stand trial on seven charges.

After a preliminary hearing Monday, 48-year-old Ray Anthony Miles was bound over for trial. He faces three counts of aggravated battery and one count each of aggravated burglary and making a criminal threat, as well as two misdemeanor charges.

The 48-year-old Miles is accused of breaking into the WIBW-TV on May 23 because he was upset that the station would not do a story on problems he was having with the Veterans Administration.

Testimony during the hearing revealed that one station employee suffered an eye injury and two others were stabbed during the attack. Those two employees' injuries were not life-threatening.

Miles' trial was set for Sept. 12.
