A Sept. 8 trial date was set Monday for one of four people charged with murder in the stabbing death of a 35-year-old woman at her home on the Campo Indian Reservation.
Darrell Norman Wohlford, 38, is accused along with Cindy Ceballos, Natalie Ceballos, and 25-year-old Casandra Alto in the Feb. 27 death of Christalina Leona Louise Indish.
Cindy Ceballos is also charged with an allegation that she personally used a knife in the murder.
The other three defendants are also expected to go on trial Sept. 8 at the El Cajon Courthouse. All of the defendants face life in prison if convicted.
The victim had been in a relationship with Wohlford, but not at the time of her death, said Deputy District Attorney Will Watkins. Wohlford and 30- year-old Cindy Ceballos were in a relationship when Indish was killed, the prosecutor said.
Watkins alleged the defendants drove to the victim’s home Feb. 27 in two cars and confronted her there.
Natalie Ceballos, 34, drove one car with Cindy Ceballos and Wohlford inside, and Alto arrived in a second car driven by a friend, who was not involved in the deadly confrontation, Watkins said.
Authorities found the victim’s body on the front stairs at her residence at 36380 Tusil Road in Boulevard.
