LANCASTER, Pa. — Two men charged with stabbing a Pennsylvania woman and burning her alive have been ordered to stand trial.

Twenty-one-year-old Adam Lynch of Reading and 19-year-old Ryan Schannauer of Wyomissing waived their preliminary hearings Monday in Lancaster County Court.

Both are charged with homicide, arson, abuse of a corpse, kidnapping and conspiracy in the death of 23-year-old Ashley Kline of Robesonia, whose body was found by hikers last month in Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area in Clay Township.

Prosecutors said the two picked up Kline from her home Dec. 30 and drove her to the wildlife area, where they beat and stabbed her. A coroner said she was still alive when she was doused with gasoline and set on fire.

Schannauer's attorney said a trial date hasn't been set.
