SAN FRANCISCO—A San Francisco woman accused of breaking into the hotel room of "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek is facing trial on charges of first-degree burglary and receiving stolen property.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Andrew Cheng ruled at the end of a preliminary hearing Tuesday that there was sufficient evidence for 56-year-old Lucinda Moyers to stand trial on those charges.

Authorities say Moyers broke into Trebek's room at a downtown San Francisco hotel July 26 and stole a bracelet, purse and wallet with $661 in cash.

The Jeopardy host allegedly tore his Achilles tendon as he tried to chase Moyers down.

Moyers's attorney, Mark Jacobs, has said his client was not in Trebek's room.
