Man and father receive sentences for attacking girlfriends

A Campo man was sentenced July 10, 2018 to 17 years in state prison for shooting his girlfriend and waving a shovel at a sheriff’s deputy in a separate incident.

Reid Valentino Wohlford, 21, said nothing as he sat handcuffed in a green jail uniform before El Cajon Superior Court Judge Robert Amador.

Wohlford received 593 days of jail credits since he was arrested on Feb. 4, 2017 for wounding his 23-year-old girlfriend on the Campo Indian Reservation. He was fined $5,548.

Wohlford pleaded guilty on Jan. 10 to felony assault of his girlfriend and to inflicting great bodily injuries to her. Charges of attempted murder, torture and making a criminal threat were dismissed.

Wohlford’s girlfriend was shot in the leg and also had severe injuries that included stab wounds and attempted strangulation, said Deputy District Attorney Jessica Paugh.

Wohlford received 16 years for the incident with his girlfriend and one year consecutively for a 2016 incident with a shovel and a sheriff’s deputy.

Sheriff’s deputies showed up at 4:12 a.m. on Feb. 16, 2016 at a home in Boulevard after someone called 911 and said something about a domestic disturbance. The caller apparently hung up.

No one responded to a knock on the door, so deputies called for someone to answer. Suddenly, Reid Wohlford ran outside, waving a shovel and screaming.

He threw a big metal pipe at one deputy and charged another with the shovel before one deputy fired a shot which missed, said Deputy District Attorney Will Watkins.

 Wohlford ran back into the house. With a police dog, deputies entered the house and arrested Wohlford.

Wohlford was found mentally competent for court proceedings and he posted bond. However, he failed to show up in court afterwards and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Authorities did not know where he was until his girlfriend called 911, saying she had been shot.

Wohlford’s father, Darrell Norman Wohlford, 41, of Boulevard, is serving a 17-year prison term after he pleaded guilty to armed residential burglary of his ex-girlfriend’s house in which she was stabbed to death.

Darrell Wohlford had been charged with murder in the death of Christalina Leona Indish, 35, on Feb. 27, 2016, in Boulevard but the murder charge was dropped after he pleaded guilty to armed burglary.

According to testimony, Darrell Wohlford set up fights between women on the Campo reservation, and was charged with arranging a deadly fight between Indish and his girlfriend, Cindy Marie Ceballos, 33.

Ceballos was found guilty by a jury of first-degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison on July 27, 2017.
