Decapitation suspect’s brother, woman charged as accessories

29 Feb

Daniel WozniakThe brother of a Costa Mesa man accused of killing two people in 2010 is one of the two people charged recently with being accessories to the crime, according to court records filed in the case.

Timothy Allen Wozniak and Lisa Gayle Golledge, both 37, were each charged with one felony count of being accessories to a murder after the fact in connection to the slayings of Samuel Herr, 26, and Herr’s friend, Irvine resident Juri “Julie” Kibuishi, 23. Golledge and Wozniak were dating at the time of the crimes, Lt. Paul Dondero told the Daily Pilot.

Wozniak and Golledge have both entered not-guilty pleas.

The alleged roles that Wozniak and Golledge played in the case were unclear, and their cities of residence could not be confirmed at the time of this report. Prosecutors and police declined to discuss the details, saying they do not want to jeopardize the case if there may be more suspects.

Prosecutors allege that Daniel Patrick Wozniak, 27, killed Herr, an Afghanistan war veteran who was his neighbor in the Camden Martinique apartment complex on Pinecreek Drive in Costa Mesa, to gain access to Herr’s bank account. Police also contend that Daniel Wozniak killed Kibuishi in Herr’s apartment in an attempt to deceive police and make Herr a suspect in her death.

Days after news of the killings, parts of Herr’s body -– including his head — were found scattered in a park in Long Beach.

Daniel Wozniak, a community playhouse actor, was eventually arrested at his bachelor party in Huntington Beach.

Daniel Wozniak has pleaded not guilty to the two felony counts of murder and denied the six sentencing enhancements he is facing. The Orange County district attorney’s office is seeking the death penalty in the case.

Timothy Wozniak was released on $20,000 bail, but Golledge remained in jail on $70,500 bail on additional charges relating to a traffic offense and abandonment and neglect of a child, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
