Grand Jury Indicts Naperville Man on 7 Counts of First-Degree Murder
Daniel Olaska was indicted Thursday on 14 counts, including seven counts of first-degree murder, in the Feb. 4 bar stabbing that killed 24-year-old Shaun Wild and injured Lemont native Willie Hayes.
A Grand Jury has issued a 14-count indictment of Daniel Olaska, the DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin announced Thursday afternoon.
Olaska is being held without bond in the stabbing death of Shaun Wild, a Naperville elementary school teacher. The incident took place early in the morning Feb. 4 at Frankie’s Blue Room when Olaska stabbed Wild, North Central football player and Lemont native Willie Hayes, and a bar bouncer. Hayes was seriously injured in the stabbing, but survived.
The DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin said in a news release that Olaska was indicted on seven counts of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, four counts of armed violence and one count of unlawful use of a weapon.
At his bond hearing on March 2, Judge Kathryn Creswell denied bond for Olaska saying: “There are no conditions or combination of conditions that would reasonably secure the safety of the community.”
Olaska’s next court hearing is scheduled for Monday morning when he will be arraigned.
