Attempted Murder Charges Filed in Domestic Violence Assault

David Uecke

David Lawrence Uecke, DOB: 10-9-75, appeared today in Jefferson County District Court where he was advised of the charges filed against him in the stabbing of a woman with whom he was intimately involved. He has been charged with Attempted First Degree Murder (F2); two counts of First Degree Assault (F3); and two violent crime counts.

On August 8, 2020 at 5:30 p.m., the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office was called to 8450 W. Cross Street, near Southwest Plaza, on a report of a stabbing. According to the arrest affidavit, they found a 41-year-old woman at the bus stop who had sustained, what appeared to be, a stab wound near the center of her throat. She was transported to the hospital. Witnesses reported that the assailant had run from the area.

Mr. Uecke and the woman had just met three days earlier and were involved in an intimate relationship, according to the affidavit. 

Mr. Uecke remains in custody at the Jefferson County jail on $75,000 bond. He is due back in court on at 1:30 on  September 1, 2020 for preliminary hearing.


The filing of a criminal charge is merely a formal accusation that an individual has committed a crime(s).  A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. See Colo. RPC 3.6
