DNA testing to be done on blood in teacher’s stabbing at Naperville club

Updated: August 13, 2012 9:16PM

DuPage County prosecutors plan to conduct DNA tests on a blood droplet found on the cell phone of the man charged with fatally stabbing school teacher Shaun Wild in a Naperville nightclub.

DuPage County Judge Kathryn Creswell agreed to allow the testing during a brief court appearance Monday by Daniel Olaska, who faces first-degree murder charges in the Feb. 4 stabbing that killed Wild and injured two other men.

Olaska is charged with stabbing the three men during a late-night altercation at Frankie’s Blue Room.

Though the stabbings were witnessed by other patrons and captured on nightclub security cameras, prosecutors previously have said they’re running genetic tests on blood taken from a knife recovered by police after the stabbing.

Olaska remains in the DuPage County Jail.
