The Los Angeles Times reports that a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ordered the trial of Richard A. Franco, who is charged with burglary and stalking Halle Berry, to go forward after a preliminary hearing Monday:

Franco was arrested July 11 after appearing on Berry's L.A.-area property three days in a row. He is charged with breaking into her home July 10.


The Oscar-winning actress has said the incidents made her fear for her life.

In civil-court papers, Berry said, "This person has invaded and trampled upon the most fundamental sense of security I have … I am extremely frightened. He has terrorized me and my family."

The series of alleged incidents began July 9 when the actress was standing in her kitchen with her manager and saw a stranger in her backyard.

The actress did not appear in court for the hearing.

Franco remains in custody at the Twin Towers jail with his bail set at $150,000.
