New trial dates in standoff, jail assault cases

The defense attorney for Ordez Eugene Kompkoff says she is still awaiting the results of a psychiatric evaluation.

PORT ANGELES — Trial dates have been reset for a Port Angeles man charged in an armed standoff with law enforcement and an alleged attack in the Clallam County jail.

Ordez Eugene Kompkoff, 22, is charged in separate cases for allegedly triggering a five-hour standoff near Joyce in January and for punching and robbing a fellow jail inmate in February.

Defense attorney Karen Unger reported Friday that she was still awaiting results of a psychological examination that was done on her client, according to the minutes of a status hearing.

Clallam County Superior Court Judge Brian Coughenour set new trial dates: Oct. 24 for the standoff case and Nov. 7 for the assault and robbery case.

A status hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 30.

Kompkoff’s trials have been reset multiple times because of delays with the psychological report. The report could be used in a potential diminished-capacity defense, Unger said in May.

The mental health evaluation was conducted by Seattle psychiatrist Dr. Kenneth Muscatel.

Kompkoff is being held in the Clallam County jail on $750,000 bail and a state Department of Corrections hold. He signed a waiver of speedy trial Friday.

The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office said Kompkoff held a man hostage at gunpoint inside a Salt Creek RV Park residence and threatened to shoot officers during the Jan. 26 standoff.

Deputies said they found a loaded revolver and semi-automatic pistol inside the residence and what appeared to be heroin residue on Kompkoff.

Kompkoff has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree kidnapping, second-degree assault with a deadly weapon, first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, first-degree escape, heroin possession and two counts of harassment-threats to kill.

Kompkoff was later charged with first-degree robbery and second-degree assault for allegedly attacking and robbing a fellow jail inmate Feb. 7 and Feb. 10.

He has maintained his innocence.
