MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Cumberland County man convicted of third-degree murder 12 years ago is headed to trial for five armed robberies in the Mechanicsburg area last fall.

James Alan Borwegen, 30, was ordered held for court during a preliminary hearing before a district judge Monday.

Borwegen is accused of armed robberies at a Pizza Hut, the Lucky Mart convenience store and the Sun Up Exxon gas station in Mechanicsburg, in addition to heists at the B&H Mart in Lower Allen Township and a Subway restaurant in Upper Allen Township between Oct. 10-15.

No one was harmed during any of the crimes.

Borwegen in March 2001 was given a sentence of 7 to 14 years in prison for fatally shooting his 13-year-old neighbor, David Colebaugh, at Borwegen's home in Mechanicsburg in January 2000, when he was 16 years old.

He was out of prison on parole when the robberies were committed.

Following the hearing, he was returned to Cumberland County Prison where he is being held on $150,000 cash bail.

His formal arraignment in county court was scheduled March 13.
