The woman accused of attacking the wife of Delegate David Toscano has waived her right to a preliminary hearing. The attorney for Claire Ogilvie (pictured) bypassed the hearing Thursday in Charlottesville General District Court. The case now goes to the city grand jury on August 18th. Ogilvie, a former teacher in Greene County, is accused of breaking into Toscano’s house in February and and attacking Nancy Tramontin. All documents in the case are sealed. Special prosecutor Jeff Haislip says that’s being done so as not to taint a jury when one is selected. Defense attorney David Rhea is not elaborating on why he has not requested a bond hearing to get Ogilvie out of jail. Ogilvie has undergone a psychiatric evaluation. She had a friendship with the Toscanos, but that ended after Tramontin said Ogilvie developed an unsettling interest in the family. The grand jury on August 18th will decide whether to return an indictment at which time a trial date would be set.
