A Naperville man accused of murdering District 204 teacher Shaun Wild appeared in court on Monday.
Daniel Olaska’s trial has been postponed until early February, a year after the bar room brawl.
Both sides are still waiting for DNA reports. The prosecution turned over investigators’ notes as a part of the discovery.
Defense Attorney Brian Telander requested the delay saying the additional time would allow him to complete the defense process. He still wants to go over surveillance footage from the night of the crime with Olaska. He also wants him evaluated by a doctor.
Olaska is charged with seven counts of first degree murder for the stabbing death of Wild, and two counts of attempted first degree murder for the initial attack on Wild’s friend and a subsequent injury of a bar employee. He is also charged with four counts of armed violence and one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
Families of both Olaska and Wild were present in court.
Daniel Olaska remains in DuPage County Jail where he is being held without bail.
