The man accused of shooting and killing his houseguest in the early morning hours of Feb. 4 delayed his entry of plea for another 14 days.
Luke Wirkkala, 32, is being held without bail in the Deschutes County jail, charged with one count of murder. He allegedly fired one round from a 12-gauge pump-action shotgun, killing 31-year-old David Ryder. Ryder was visiting Wirkkala’s home in southeast Bend at the time.
Wirkkala is expected to enter a plea at 1:30 p.m. May 8.
