He's set to appear in court June 19

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa - A judge has signed off on murder and attempted murder charges against a man accused of killing a sheriff's deputy and wounding another while escaping from the Council Bluffs jail.

At a preliminary hearing today, a Pottawattamie County judge scheduled arraignment for Wesley Correa-Carmenaty, 24, for next month.

He'll be transported to Council Bluffs for that arraignment from the Woodbury County jail here in Sioux City, where he's currently being held.

Correa-Carmenaty is accused of attacking Deputy Mark Burbridge and wounding Deputy Pat Morgan.  Correa-Carmenaty was serving a 45 year prison sentence on voluntary manslaughter charges at the time of the attack.
