CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & -- A 21-year-old man has been ordered to stand trial in the 2011 heroin-related death of a woman in Carson City.

Judge John Tatro ruled Friday that there was sufficient evidence to bind Angel Altamirano over to Carson City District Court on a second-degree murder charge.

The Nevada Appeal reports Altamirano is accused of giving or selling heroin to 23-year-old Brittany Rubke in October 2011.

According to court documents, she had an adverse reaction that led to her death at a Reno hospital, but it's unknown whether she overdosed or not.

This Judge has no, nada, zero, law education, degree or even from a match book cover school, knowledge of the law. Because of that, any ruling on a capital case such as this is now open to any appeal they want to do. This will make this a waste of the taxpayers money and time. Nevada should make it a law that anyone setting on any court bench in the position of any judge WILL HAVE a license/degree to practice law. Nevada law states that anyone with no legal training, schooling, education, or license can set on a lower court bench. In other words, Joe the Ragman can be a JUDGE that makes life or death decisions. He can make these rulings but can't give you one word of legal advice? What's wrong with this picture.
