The Summit County District Court set an arraignment date for Sky Wodraska, a 37-year-old Breckenridge man charged with first-degree attempted murder. The hearing will take place at the Summit County Courthouse on June 29 at 1 p.m.

“I would like to get a plea one way or the other at that point,” Fifth Judicial District Judge Mark Thompson said.

The hearing will also give the defense an opportunity to review a ruling made by a grand jury on April 1, where Wodraksa was indicted on 16 charges including attempted first-degree murder after deliberation, first-degree assault, first-degree burglary, three counts of second-degree kidnapping, child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, retaliation against a witness or victim, three counts of menacing, possession of burglary tools, two counts of child abuse, and two counts of violent crime.

Following a request by the defense to review transcripts and the selection process for the grand jury, the court granted them the ability to review all documents, exhibits and physical evidence presented to the grand jury in April. Thompson said the court would consider whether or not to grant them the records of the grand juror selection list, attendance and questionnaires.

“You have a right to free speech, but it never includes confronting others with a firearm. It never includes acting the way you did. ”Judge Gordon P. Gallagher

The court has not yet set a trial date for the case. Wodraska is accused of breaking into the home of his former girlfriend and attacking two of her daughters, ages 10 and 14, as well as another 14-year-old girl who was present. One of the 14-year-old girls was hospitalized with multiple stab wounds, and the 10-year-old girl was found bound and gagged at the site of the crime.
