Rainbow Gathering's 'Hitler' waves preliminary hearing
A Rainbow Gathering attendee accused of stabbing two men during the June-July camping fest in the mountains east of Heber has waived her right to a preliminary hearing.
Leilani Novak-Garcia, 33, also known as "Hitler," is charged in 4th District Court with a second-degree felony attempted murder for allegedly stabbing a man in the head and shoulder who was trying to get her to stop honking her car horn at about 1 a.m. on June 23.
During the same episode, Novak-Garcia allegedly stabbed another man in the arm, for which she has been charged with third-degree felony aggravated assault.
Deputy Wasatch County Attorney McKay King has said the woman reportedly struck yet another person with a tire iron, but the alleged victim was never found.
Novak-Garcia will appear in court again Wednesday for an arraignment hearing.
She faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted as charged.
