The 18-year-old Rancho Palos Verdes resident who struck and killed a Marymount College mathematics and physics professor while driving in 2009, was ordered Wednesday to stand trial on a vehicular manslaughter charge.
Sufficient evidence was found by Torrance Superior Court Judge Cary H. Nishimoto to require Ho Jai Lee to stand trial.
The Dec. 20, 2009 crash killed Jamel Abdelhamid Kammoun, 49, and father of three young children.
Authorities said Lee — who was 17 at the time of the crash — lost control of his car, ricocheted off a wall and hit Kammoun, who was out for a morning walk.
Last August, Lee was ordered to stand trial as an adult. He is due back in court for arraignment on Feb. 16.
