WHEATON, Ill. (CBS) — A Naperville man has pleaded not guilty to the stabbing death of a school teacher inside a nightclub last month.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Lisa Fielding reports, Daniel Olaska, 27, stands charged in the Feb. 4 murder of teacher Shaun Wild, 24, at Frankie’s Blue Room, at 14 W. Chicago Ave. in Naperville.

Olaska entered his plea at an arraignment in DuPage County Court on Monday.

Prosecutors say Olaska stabbed another man, William Hayes III, in the chest with a 5-inch folding knife, after Hayes allegedly teased him about drinking beer from a wineglass.

Wild was stabbed in the heart when he tried to intervene.

Olaska also allegedly stabbed a third man, bouncer Rafael Castenada.

Wild was in his first year as a second grade teacher at Spring Brook Elementary School in Naperville.

Olaska has been indicted on 14 counts, including seven counts of first-degree murder.

His attorneys have made a motion to get his bond reduced, but prosecutors are fighting the effort.
