Attempted murder suspect's case sent to district court


Judge Mary Lynne James Tuesday sent a case involving a Craig man who is charged with attempted second-degree murder to district court.

Joseph McGill, 30, will be arraigned by Judge Michael O'Hara at 3 p.m. April 28.

McGill remains free after posting $5,000 bond on Feb. 5.

He is charged with attempted second-degree murder and attempted first-degree assault after allegedly firing a handgun at motorist driving in front of his 4th Street mobile home the night of Nov. 14.

McGill denied the incident at an earlier hearing.

Police have recovered one bullet in the alleged shooting. One witness claims to have heard shots when McGill ran out an open front door, after the alleged victim had driven past the house.

No weapon has been recovered, police have said.

McGill was arrested and initially held without bond Jan. 21 after appearing in Moffat County Court on a summons -- more than two weeks after the District Attorney's office filed charges in the case.
