A judge found enough evidence to send Matthew Hughes to trial on charges of home invasion and malicious destruction of property.
“When Mr. Mathers asked him why he was there, he was told by Mr. Hughes that he was there to kill him,” Officer Adam Hackstock told Judge Jacob Femminineo Jr.

Eminem escorted Hughes out of the house, Hackstock testified.
“In my opinion, I think there’s some sort of mental issues involved here,” defense attorney Paul Glanda said outside court, referring to Hughes.
Eminem didn’t attend the court hearing.
