PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A man accused of threatening UPMC employees over the phone will stand trial.

Louis Lombardi, of McKees Rocks, will stand trial for harassment, stalking and terroristic threats.

He is accused of making the threats over a series of phone calls to UPMC in a dispute over his anxiety medication.

Two customer service agents from UPMC testified about receiving those phone calls. They say Lombardi was yelling and screaming when he mentioned the Western Psych shootings.

Lombardi, who called reporters to his home last week to give interviews, didn’t say much Wednesday as he walked out of his hearing with his attorney.

His attorney said, “No comment.”

Testimony indicated Lombardi’s phone calls were recorded and will likely be played during trial.

Lombardi has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
