Enbridge pipeline protester faces trial

Lead in text: 
Christopher Wahmhoff crawled into the finished pipeline on June 24 to protest construction of a replacement for the line that ruptured in July 2010, spilling nearly a million gallons of crude oil into the Kalamazoo River.
A Kalamazoo man who protested the building of a new Enbridge Inc. oil pipeline was ordered to stand trial on two felony charges Tuesday. He faces up to two years in prison if convicted. He also is charged with a misdemeanor of trespassing which carries a maximum of 30 days in jail.
