Two and a half years after the stabbing death of a Naperville teacher the trial process has stalled.
Daniel Olaska recently appeared in DuPage County Court for what was scheduled to be a trial date setting: instead his attorney Ernest DiBenedetto said “it’s not realistic for him to be in a position to try the case this year.”
DiBenedetto, who agreed it would be in everyone’s best interest to finish the trial early next year, took over the case from Olaska’s first attorney, Brian Telander when he was appointed as a circuit judge.
Instead of setting a date, the state asked to give the defense more time to avoid causing additional anxiety to the victim’s family.
Olaska is charged with the February 2012 murder of Shaun Wild inside Frankie’s Blue Room in downtown Naperville and for injuring two others.
Both sides agreed to return to court on October 8 to hopefully set a date.
