MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A Siskiyou County, Calif., judge has ruled there is enough to evidence to try a 26-year-old Oregon woman for the murder of her husband.

Patricia MacCallum of Medford faces a sentence of 25 years to life if convicted of killing Michael MacCallum. No trial date has been set.

The body of Michael MacCallum was found Nov. 20 at the base of a cliff in Northern California.

Police determined the 34-year-old bartender and cab driver died of a gunshot wound.

Patricia MacCallum and her stepsister Amber Lubbers were arrested Dec. 7 in Medford.

The Mail Tribune newspaper reports (http://is.gd/6c7Q0p ) that Lubbers pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of being an accessory after the fact. She testified at Patricia MacCallum's hearing on Friday.
