A Steamboat Springs man accused of shooting at two excavation workers last month will have his case heard in District Court.
On Wednesday, Routt County Judge James Garrecht sent Russell Dean Marmon's case to District Court. Marmon's next court appearance is set for July 7.
Marmon's attorney, Tim Oliphant, said he could not agree with the plea agreement assistant district attorney Kerry St. James had proposed.
"We're not going to take it," Oliphant told Garrecht.
Marmon, who has been charged with felony menacing, still may not make any contact with the two Miller Excavating employees he is accused of firing two shots at April 3.
Marmon was reportedly upset with a river excavation project behind his home.
The city hired Milner Excavating to place boulders in the riverbed to improve fish habitat and create additional recreation areas for tubers and kayakers.
No one was injured in the shooting, which occurred behind a trailer adjacent to Marmon's home, according to police reports.
Marmon admitted in court last month that alcohol impaired his judgment and he couldn't recall much of the incident.
Oliphant will use the time before Marmon's next court appearance to look into the the incident.
