Woman Accused In Wildomar Killing Makes Court Appearance

Summer Sharmaine Stephens, 38, is suspected of aiding a suspect in the killing death of a Wildomar man.

A 38-year-old Wildomar woman suspected of being an accessory in the killing death of a Wildomar man made her first court appearance Friday but did not enter a plea.

Summer Sharmaine Stephens is charged with one count of aiding and abetting Anthony Garcia, who is now a suspect in the killing. Garcia, 32, also of Wildomar, was arrested during the investigation on suspicion of disorderly conduct while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

On Friday, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Michael Rushton granted a motion by Stephens' attorney to postpone her arraignment until Monday, when Garcia is slated to appear.

Stephens' bail was set at $500,000, court records indicate. It was unclear whether charges would be added to her case.

A third suspect -- a 13-year-old, gender and name undisclosed -- has also been arrested in the case.

An assault call in Wildomar earlier this week led to the discovery of the dead man about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the area of Mariposa Road and Mission Trail.

The victim's age and identity have not been released by authorities.

I heard several different stories on this case, on what happen, and why the guy died, and what not! I have heard stories from people who were there up front and personal when it came to the case, so I can't wait to see what happens and how this all plays out, it is just so close to home where I grew up at by that street, and it just shocks me of what all happen, and I am not taking either sides because I was not there to know what happen, I just been hearing several stories. And for the man who died it is sad no one should die the way this man died, but you also should not be hanging out with people like that if your such a good person!! (just saying)

I know Trisha, and this is her brother, just because she typed his name wrong it was a typo, every family has a bad apple, I have several bad apples in my family, but it is there problem the way they turned out!

For a 13 year old being involved, was he was in the wrong place, he should of not been hanging out with people like this, he should be home where he belongs, so his parents or guardians should be blamed for this kids actions!

CC, I understand what you are trying to say, and you are right, he is charged with this crime and right now everyone is looking at him as guilty in tell otherwise, it is only common sense on how to understand how the system works! I can't stand when someone wants to think they know what they are talking about. Good backing up CC

And that is exactly what's wrong with Elsinore. No one ever takes personal responsibility for what they do. Go toot that horn somewhere else. His girlfriend didn't run that show. He had a real tight leash on her. They were always hannging around my husbands work. Wow 2 people from that wholefamily that you say are good people? I know exactly who your family is, so save it. Birds of a feather.

@Some guy, good one! (I'm gonna have to steal that line from you!)

This is a sad story or everyone. Those who did it will be punished. Who is to say the victim is innocent? It could have been self defense ... You never know because you were not there. People have the right to their opinions; but it doesn't take away from the truth and factual evidence.

@ constant comment ... I don't know if you know this, but siblings can have different last names. You must not be the sharpest person out there. Just saying. You're real quick to judge others. You should probably change that about yourself.

When I say they their were six or more involved I am not stating names as of yet publicly
linda September 27, 2012 at 04:24 AM
Summer ordered me dead not read... don't be fooled by any of them. They are all very dick people who are or were capable of killing without remorse.
linda September 27, 2012 at 04:24 AM
Summer ordered me dead not read... don't be fooled by any of them. They are all very sick people who are or were capable of killing without remorse.

@linda. This is quite a story and you won't state names??? I hope you go to the authorities now that ur no longer in danger of retaliation. Bob is in jail..I watched him get arrested for a different crime and he's not getting out anytime soon. I did hear that Devin is the boy you are referring to in this posting. But Devin is 15...Are you saying that Matthew Warner age 13 did this to you along with Summer and Bob??? If so the family would really like to know because they are shocked about Matthew and his involvement in this terrible crime. If you know where Matthew's family lives, then please go tell his grandmother because she isn't getting any info and certainly would like to know what other violent crimes he was involved in. As far as the family knew Matthew was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Thank god ur okay but you deserve justice no matter what!

And they walk among us, wow!
Teller of Truth September 28, 2012 at 03:10 AM
Joe Dirt, she wrote Gracis instead of Garcia. You should know that people come on here all the time claiming to know something more or someone. They do it to feel important. People "judge" stories on here every day. Thats why they ask for comments & opinions. If you can't hang with that, then leave.

Of course the walk among us " and the weak shall inherit the earth"

OMG, I told Summer 10 years ago when she worked for me that if she did not stop her drinking that her life would go straight downhill, and it did... This woman was a BIG Time Alcoholic back then. She admitted to me that she drank 18 beers each night and that was in 2005. I had to fire her because her drinking became so bad. I can still remember the day that I had her in my office and I gave her a whole handful of brochures for AA. I asked her if I could take her to a meeting that night but she refused. WOW, how the world turns around. Summer, at one time you were actually a good person and look what drugs and alcohol has done to your life. You will be lucky if you get life in prison but you deserve the Death Penalty for killing this poor man... May God have mercy on your soul, because no-one else does...
Frank Lebow October 25, 2012 at 12:09 AM
Linda, I am very sorry to hear of what you have gone through with these homeless miscreant criminal thugs... What they did to you is utterly disgusting. These animals run around in packs like wild dogs and they do what they want to whomever they want. You are extremely lucky that you did not end up dead (for real) or left in a vegetative state, beaten until your brains fell out of your head. Just because this boy is only 13 does NOT mean that he is not filled with rage and violence. As we now can see, this 13 year old boy is very capable of murder... This kid as well as all the other's who were involved in assaulting you should be sent to prison for attempted murder at the very least. Summer even made a reference that "you should be dead"... To me that seems like she was hoping for your death and is was only a miracle that you were able to fake being dead and then they left you alone... Please for the sake of all other victims of violent crimes, DO NOT let the District Attorney lower the crimes against these disgusting thug criminals and let them plea bargain their case's down... These people need to be sent away to prison for many, many years... Thankfully you did survive and can live to see another day...
Jack November 06, 2012 at 10:48 PM
Sad to see what drugs can do. I grew up with Summer from Elementary through High School and she was the nicest caring person...sounds like drugs completely changed her personality.

Phil for someone who has a big opinion about Lake Elsinore, how about you take out our trash for us! Since the Mayor and others can't seem to do it!!!
California Girl December 22, 2012 at 12:42 AM
I know his sister, but I do not know Anthony! And his sister was not in no EVL gang, she was a good girl and she has her head on her shoulders, I went to school with her
