Westerfield To Stand Trial

Sponsored by:

A San Diego judge has decided there is enough evidence to hold David Westerfield for trial in the kidnap and murder of seven-year-old Danielle van Dam.

The judge´s decision came yesterday, the third day of a preliminary hearing for Westerfield. Brenda van Dam wiped away tears as she took the stand to recount the days before her daughter´s disappearance.

Van Dam said she met Westerfield at a Poway bar that night and that he bought drinks for her and two friends. Van Dam said she first met Westerfield when she and her daughter went to his home two doors away to sell Girl Scout cookies.
