Man denies Lake Tahoe stabbing charge
A May 2015 jury trial was set in the case of a San Francisco man who is denying a charge of battery with a deadly weapon in a July 5 incident that occurred at a Stateline casino.
Christopher Lee Calder, 30, entered a not guilty plea in Douglas County District Court on Tuesday.
He waived his right to a speedy trial and Judge Tod Young set a May 18, 2015 trial date.
Attorneys agreed the trial would take four days.
Calder was arrested after deputies received a report of a stabbing in one of the rooms at Harvey’s Hotel and Casino. The 29-year-old victim said Calder and another man returned to the room and woke everyone up, resulting in an argument.
The victim claimed Calder armed himself with a knife and pushed him into the hallway. When the victim tried to enter the room, he was stabbed in the abdomen.
Calder is free on $25,000 bail. Young added that he not possess dangerous weapons to his bail conditions.
