Deputy Utah County Attorney Curtis Larson said Hansen wrote a 14-page ruling and read most of his decision in court Tuesday.
"Based on the evidence that was presented during the preliminary hearing, we felt that we had satisfied our burden, and had anticipated that the judge would bind over the case for trial," Larson said.
Morris and Logue were charged in June with first-degree felony aggravated murder after a confidential informant told police that Yuri Sanchez Lara, 32, had hired Morris to hurt Purcell.
According to charges, Lara contacted Morris to kill Purcell in exchange for an ounce of methamphetamine. Morris was given a half-ounce before the shooting and the rest after Lara learned Purcell was in the hospital, charges state. Logue allegedly was with Morris at the time of the shooting.
During the preliminary hearing, William Thompson testified that Lara had wanted to hurt Purcell because he thought Purcell had told police about a cache of methamphetamine kept in Lara's storage unit.
But Orem Police Officer Scott Spieth testified that Purcell was not the person who informed on Lara, rather it was a woman who was caught with methamphetamine.
Purcell died May 17, a day after he was found on his mother's porch with a gunshot wound in his forehead.
Lara is also charged with first-degree felony aggravated murder. All three men are expected in court for an arraignment on Oct. 2.
