Divorce case involving Steamboat shooting suspect, victim advancing
Judge could set terms for couple involved in June 11 incident
November 27, 2010
Steamboat Springs — If Robert and Rhonda Cash can't figure out the details to their divorce by Feb. 1, District Judge Mary Hoak will set the terms for them.
Robert Cash is accused of shooting Rhonda Cash on June 11 at their Steamboat Springs home. He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder.
The couple started divorce proceedings in April, but it was delayed several times.
Rhonda Cash has appeared by telephone conference for several of the hearings, and attorneys on both sides of the case say there has been little in the way of progress in the divorce settlement.
Carole Krohn, representing Rhonda Cash, said in a hearing late last month that she thought a settlement was close, and she asked for a few more weeks. Neither Robert Cash nor Rhonda Cash had filed required financial statements at that time, partly because documents from the home were in storage and Rhonda Cash is no longer in Routt County.
Routt County Judge James Garrecht agreed to give the sides more time to work out the details, but he said even then, the resolution needed to come soon.
The two sides still can negotiate until the Feb. 1 hearing, but the final orders will be issued that day. The hearing is scheduled to take an entire day with Hoak, who will travel from Grand County for the hearing.
Robert Cash is next scheduled to appear in court on his attempted murder charge at 1 p.m. Dec. 9. The results of a psychiatric evaluation are expected to be available by that day.
