Separate rulings from the Vatican involving alleged sex abuse by priests in New Jersey.
The Vatican says a 72-year-old priest accused of abusing a teen-age boy more than 40 years ago must face a church trial.
But it also says an 87-year-old priest who's also facing sex abuse allegations is too old to face a tribunal.
The two priests both serve in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Paterson, which announced the rulings.
