Parra made an angry outburst in is previous court appearance, claiming his wife was trying to kill him.
He is scheduled for a jury trial in August. County Attorney Mark Young said previously that Parra has been offered a plea agreement, and has until the time of his pre-trial hearing to accept the offer and avoid the trial.
