Attempted Murder Charge Filed

SIOUX RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) – A Sioux Rapids man accused of stabbing a 19-year-old man last week now faces an attempted murder charge.

43-year-old Pedro Orozco was initially charged with willful injury but an attempted murder charge was added Monday.

Buena Vista County Sheriff Doug Simons says the additional charge was added after police discussed the case with the county attorney.

Orozco is accused of stabbing 19-year-old Chayton Quail of Spencer at a Sioux Rapids home on July 9.

Simons says Orozco and Quail knew each other. Quail remains hospitalized.

An arraignment on the new charge has been set for August 4th. Orozco’s bond was increased to $50,000.
