Attorney Clifford Safranski, representing Estephen Juarez, told Judge Douglas C. Phimister that an offer from the District Attorney’s Office had been made and that a possible resolution could be at hand.
A hearing was made for May 10 at 8:30 a.m. in Department 1 to determine further hearing dates in the case and whether Juarez would be accepting the offer.
Juarez, 33, was arrested in connection with the death of Gene Mcarn, 19, of Rescue, who died of stab wounds on Nov. 21, 2012, after an alleged encounter with Juarez at Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs. Juarez is being held in the county jail on two counts of violation of probation and one count of murder with a $70,000 bail hold.
