Bollywood Star to Face Homicide Charge

A court in India's commercial capital, Mumbai, has ruled that Bollywood star Salman Khan will be tried for homicide in a fatal hit-and-run case.

If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in jail.

One man was killed and three others were injured when Khan allegedly rammed his car into a group of people sleeping on a Mumbai sidewalk in 2002. The trial will begin July 19.

The actor was earlier being tried for the lesser offence of causing death by negligence. That charge carries a maximum punishment of two years in jail.
