Prosecutors are moving ahead in the Daniel Olaska case.
In court this morning DuPage County Judge Kathryn Creswell granted Assistant State’s Attorney Dimitri Demopoulas’s request for destructive testing.
That means the knife used to kill Shaun Wild will undergo DNA testing on samples so small, it will destroy the weapon.
Wild was killed February 4, 2012, at Frankie’s Blue Room in downtown Naperville.
A friend and a bar employee were injured.
Olaska’s attorney Brian Telander did not dispute the request saying it shouldn’t impact the case, because this isn’t a matter of “whodunit” but a matter of why.
Telander recently received a hard drive containing video from the four security cameras at the bar.
He asked the judge to give him time to review the footage before the next court date, which was scheduled for August 11th.
