His trial before Common Pleas Judge Christopher J. Collier is scheduled for May 20.

Wuensch also is facing trial on multiple charges stemming from the alleged home invasion.

In that case, Wuensch is accused of breaking into a 43-year-old Chippewa Lake woman’s home with several friends and hitting the woman with a baseball bat. According to police reports, he also threw gasoline on the woman and her 14-year-old son. Wuensch pleaded not guilty March 11 to two counts of aggravated burglary, two counts of kidnapping — all first-degree felonies — and a count of second-degree felonious assault.
