A Kern County Superior Court judge on Monday ordered a Bakersfield man to trial on nearly three dozen charges for a series of violent incidents he is alleged to have perpetrated against several people who were part of a gun and drug ring, including the murder of a man who is part of the Bakersfield 3.

Matthew Queen, 45, will be tried on a total of 34 charges in the case, and faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted on them all. He has pleaded not guilty and is being held in jail without bail.
