It was a charged atmosphere Wednesday as the man accused of stabbing his ex-wife and one of his children Tuesday evening appeared in Hall County Court.
47-year-old Jesus Parra is charged with attempted 1st degree murder, 2nd degree assault, four counts of use of a deadly weapon and other related charges.
As Judge Art Wetzel read the charges and explained Parra's rights, Parra interrupted the proceedings several times. He accused his ex-wife of poisoning and torturing him.
Judge Wetzel advised Parra to stop talking several times with corrections officers warning him as well.
Hall County Attorney Mark Young said in court that Parra confronted Rosa Oliva de Parra near the 2100 block of West 11 Street in Grand Island yesterday at about 3:50 PM.
Young says after Parra accused her of having numerous affairs, he stabbed her with a knife...causing significant injuries to her head.
As the two continued the struggle, one of the house occupants, 19-year-old Judy, tried to intervene...suffering a cut to her hand.
Both Rosa and Judy were taken to St. Francis Medical Center. Jesus Parra is being held on a $750,000. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 31st.
