A 65-year-old American Fork man has been ordered to stand trial for allegedly having sex with his neighbor's dog.
Melvin Parley Pace, 65, was charged in July in 4th District Court with five counts of lewdness with prior convictions, a third-degree felony, as well as five counts of bestiality and seven counts of criminal trespass, which are class B misdemeanors.
Following a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, Judge Derek Pullan ordered Pace to stand trial on all 17 counts.
Pace is to appear again in court for arraignment on Oct. 7.
This is the second time Pace has been charged with having sex with his neighbors' Kangal, a large Turkish dog breed.
