Sky Wodraska appears in court; trial date remains unsettled

Breckenridge resident Sky Wodraska, charged with the attempted murder after deliberation following the assault of three girls, waived further advisement on indictments brought forward by a grand jury during a Monday, April 13 hearing.

Judge Mark Thompson has not yet set a date for Wodraska’s trial, but set another hearing for May 11, at 9:30 a.m., to give the defense time to review transcripts from the April 1 grand jury meeting.

Wodraska, 37, 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.

“Obviously the charges reflect the most serious type of criminal conduct that exists,” said Fifth Judicial District Attorney Bruce Brown.

Wodraska’s defense attorney did not comment regarding the charges set by the grand jury.

During Monday’s deliberations, Judge Thompson decided to retain Wodraska’s $2 million bond and accompanying conditions, as well as a restraining order from the previous case. Last week, during an April 6 advisement, Wodraska waived extradition as a condition for any cash or bail that could be posted.

Wodraska allegedly used burglary tools to break into the home of his former girlfriend and brutally assault her two daughters as well as another girl. A 14-year-old girl was stabbed three times, in the hand, neck and back, and a 10-year-old girl was bound and gagged with duct tape. A third girl, aged 14, escaped while the struggle ensued.

Court documents show that Wodraska was previously arrested and charged with sexually assaulting one of the daughters of his former girlfriend. However, Wodraska pleaded guilty to child abuse and the other charges were dropped.

Later in 2014, he was arrested again and charged with stalking and harassing the same family, by sending threatening emails, phone and text messages to the girl and her mother. Wodraska pleaded guilty to intimidation of a witness or victim, and all other charges were dropped.
