A March 20 preliminary hearing is set Jan. 16 for a man suspected of trying to kill his estranged wife in the parking lot of a Santee restaurant. Travis Sterling Haddix, 27, is accused of attempted murder in the Nov. 20, 2017, incident at 2:09 p.m. in which Heather Haddix, 25, was stabbed four times.

The couple met in the parking lot to discuss matters involving their separation and child custody. The sheriff’s department said Travis Haddix became enraged and stabbed her twice in the torso, hand, and neck.

Haddix fled to his home in the college area where he was arrested by San Diego Police officers. The victim was hospitalized.

He has pleaded not guilty in El Cajon Superior Court. His Facebook page says he attended Grossmont College and formerly lived in Santee.

Haddix remains in the George Bailey Detention Facility on $1 million bail.

Father and son sentenced for separate crimes

Seventeen is a shared number for an East County father and son as both will soon be serving 17 years in state prison for different crimes.

Reid Valentino Wohlford, 20, pleaded guilty Jan. 10 to shooting his girlfriend, 23, and inflicting great bodily injury in a Feb. 4, 2017 incident on the Campo Indian Reservation.

Reid Wohlford also pleaded guilty to felony assault of a sheriff’s deputy in which he waved a shovel at him in a Feb. 16, 2016, incident in Boulevard. The deputy fired one shot at Wohlford which missed him.

Deputy District Attorney Will Watkins said a stipulated sentence of 17 years will be imposed against Reid Wohlford on May 3 in El Cajon Superior Court.

Wohlford’s father, Darrell Norman Wohlford, 40, 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.

Darrell Wohlford liked to arrange fights between women on the Campo reservation. His current girlfriend, Cindy Marie Ceballos, 32, was found guilty by a jury of first-degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison on July 27, 2017.

In the plea agreement with Reid Wohlford, charges of attempted murder and torture of his girlfriend, who was shot in the leg were dismissed along with making a criminal theft after he pleaded guilty to felony assault.

Reid Wohlford’s girlfriend had very severe injuries that included stab wounds and attempted strangulation, said Deputy District Attorney Jessica Paugh. She was hospitalized.

The incident involving the shovel occurred when someone called 911 at 4:12 a.m. from a house in the 4600 block of Kumeyaay Road in Boulevard. Sheriff’s deputies responded, but no one came to the door.

Deputies called out for someone to exit and Reid Wohlford ran out of the house, waving a shovel and screaming, according to deputies. He threw a big metal pipe at one deputy and charged at the other deputy with a shovel over his head, said Watkins.

One deputy, a 30-year veteran, fired a shot which missed. They arrested him, but Wohlford posted bond and then failed to show up again in court.

A $150,000 warrant for his arrest remained outstanding until his girlfriend called 911 to say she had been shot.

Reid Wohlford remains in jail on $2 million bail.

Competency hearing set for alleged drunk driver

A Jan. 26 mental competency hearing is set for an alleged drunk driver who is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of a pregnant woman and her baby in Ramona on Mother’s Day.

Criminal proceedings are suspended for Andrew Dorian Milonis, 45, after his attorney told a judge he didn’t think his client was mentally competent to understand court proceedings.

Jessica Foderingham, 29, and her unborn child were killed May 14, 2017, on San Vincente Road near Ramona after Milonis’ vehicle struck the victim’s vehicle.

Milonis remains in jail without bail. If he is found mentally competent, criminal proceedings will resume. If not, he will be sent to a psychiatric hospital for treatment.
