Live Oak — The attorney for Shawn O’Bryan, the man accused of attempting to kill Shannon Wrench, was awarded a continuance during his pre-trial on Thursday, Nov. 8. 
O’Bryan’s trial date is tentatively set for Jan. 28  to Feb. 1, 2013.

Shannon Wrench, a woman who Suwannee County residents knew only as Jane Doe for sometime is now back home in Rantoul, Ill. and her mother reports she is doing well. Wrench was found unresponsive and badly beaten off 153rd Road North in Suwannee County on July 16.

For three weeks and a day, Wrench was in a medically induced coma in a Gainesville hospital, suffering from multiple skull fractures, and major cuts and bruises. Eventually, Wrench started showing vast signs of improvement. She awoke from the coma on Tuesday, Aug. 7, and on Friday, Aug. 10, O’Bryan, 646 St. Andrews Circle, Rantoul, Ill., was arrested by the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office out of Illinois for attempted first degree murder. O’Bryan was transferred and booked into the Suwannee County Jail on Aug. 20.
