Trial Date Set for Cheyenne Teen Charged With Attempted Murder
A trial date has been set for a Cheyenne teen charged with attempted murder in the stabbing of a man at a bar last month.
The incident happened around 11 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, at the Lamp Lounge at 101 W. 6th Street.
Police say 17-year-old Joey Carabajal initiated a verbal altercation with Vincent Phillips, followed him into the bar, stabbed him with a knife, and then fled the scene.
Phillips was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Carabajal was arrested around 2 o'clock the following morning and formally charged as an adult.
Carabajal pleaded not guilty to attempted second-degree murder last week in Laramie County District Court, and his trial was set for Oct. 11.
Carabajal remains housed in the Juvenile Services Center on a $20,000 cash or surety bond.
If convicted, Carabajal could face 20 years to life in prison.
