Police: Woodland man stabs sleeping wife

From page A2 | March 21, 2013 |

A Woodland man faces attempted murder and child endangerment charges after allegedly stabbing his wife in the chest early Wednesday morning as she lay sleeping next to the couple’s young daughter.

Guillermo Aldama, 35, was arrested at the scene of the stabbing, which Woodland police Sgt. Steve Guthrie said occurred at about 1 a.m. at 14 W. Cross St., an apartment complex just south of Lee Middle School.

Guthrie said investigators determined Aldama used a knife to stab his wife once in the upper chest while she was sleeping next to her 9-year-old daughter, who was not injured. The wife was transported to the UC Davis Medical Center with injuries that Guthrie described as non-life-threatening.

The motive for the alleged attack remains under investigation.

“He’s not very cooperative with the officers, so that we do not know,” Guthrie said. The couple has no history of domestic violence that police are aware of, he added.

Whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident also is unclear, Guthrie said. Police performed a felony blood draw at the time of Aldama’s arrest, so “that’ll be determined in time.”

Guthrie declined to specify the type of knife used in the stabbing, citing the ongoing investigation.

Aldama is being held without bail at the Yolo County Jail. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Friday in Yolo Superior Court, a jail spokeswoman said.

Meanwhile, anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-661-7800.
