Updated: Breckenridge man accused of stabbing 14-year-old girl he had previously abused
A $2 million bond was set following a March 9 court hearing for a 37-year-old Breckenridge man accused of brutally assaulting three young girls.
The suspect, Sky Wodraska, allegedly broke into the home of his former girlfriend on Saturday, March 7 at 1:45 a.m., assaulting two 14-year-olds and one 10-year-old.
Investigators say he bound and gagged the 10-year-old girl with duct tape. While one 14-year-old girl escaped, the other sustained facial injuries and three stab wounds located in her back, neck and hand. She is still in critical condition, but is expected to live, according to 5th Judicial District Attorney Bruce Brown.
“I think that the interest of the victims are paramount in this case,” Brown said, when he suggested a $2 million bond. At the time of the alleged crime, Wodraska was under a restraining order with a $1,500 bond.
According to a report by 7 News Denver, Wodraska was arrested in June 2014 for child sexual assault and violating a protection order involving one of the current victims. In November, Wodraska pleaded guilty to child abuse and prosecutors dismissed charges of sexual assault.
After the March 7 attack, police and sheriff’s deputies arrested Wodraska a half hour away from the victim’s residence, located in Great Divide Condominiums at 1258 Baldy Road in unincorporated Summit County, Colorado. He was transported to Summit Medical Center and treated for self-inflicted injuries.
Charged with attempted first-degree murder, a class 2 felony, Wodraska could spend 16 to 48 years in jail, with five years minimum of parole if convicted. He faces the following charges:
• Murder in the First Degree, a class 2 felony (Criminal Attempt)
• Assault in the First Degree, a class 3 felony
• Second Degree Kidnapping, a class 3 felony (2 counts)
• Child Abuse, a class 3 felony
• First Degree Burglary, a class 3 felony
• Possession of Burglary Tools, a class 5 felony
• Violation of Protection order, a class 1 misdemeanor
• Violation of Bond Conditions, a class 3 misdemeanor
At the end of the hearing, the judge recommended Wodraska’s immediate commitment because of mental health concerns.
The next hearing is scheduled for March 16, at 1:30 p.m. at the Summit County District Court. Wodraska waived his requirement for a preliminary hearing within 35 days under the advice of his defense attorney.
Wodraska has faced five total misdemeanor and felony charges in the last two years, in addition to the current case. Last Wednesday, March 4, he was charged with a possession misdemeanor, and on Feb. 14, 2015, he was charged with intimidation by threatening a witness.
A LinkedIn profile of Wodraska indicates he has owned Sky Taxi, a Breckenridge taxi, limousine and transportation services company, which state records show was incorporated in 2011.
