Father, son accused in home invasion robbery, shooting, ordered to stand trial

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - A father and son accused of carrying out a home invasion robbery in Lemon Grove, where one of the victims was shot and critically wounded, will face trial, a judge ruled Thursday.

Gregory Alan Jewell, 49, and Joshua Alan Wineski, 22, will be tried on felony robbery and burglary charge,s along with weapons allegations, Deputy District Attorney Kristine Grimm said.

Jewell -- the alleged shooter -- faces life in prison if convicted and his son would face up to 16 years. The younger man was armed with an unloaded 12-gauge shotgun and provided "backup" for his father, the prosecution alleges.

A man who lives in the Lemon Grove home in the 1800 block of Bakersfield Street was shot multiple times the night of Aug. 7, according to Jeff Weiss, a San Diego County Sheriff's Department communications supervisor.

Deputies were called to the home at 10:16 p.m. What was initially reported as a hot prowl was quickly upgraded to a home-invasion robbery, then a shooting, Weiss said.

Grimm said witnesses testified that Jewell had known the victim for 17 years and sometimes purchased marijuana from him. The night of the shooting, the defendants went to purchase a bag of the drug, and the shooting took place after an argument over a $100 credit that Jewell believed he was owed, she alleged.

Witnesses told deputies they saw two men fleeing with guns in a vehicle that had a flat tire. The flat was apparently caused by a witness who intentionally punctured a tire before the gunmen fled, Weiss said.

A responding deputy heard a vehicle being driven in the area with a flat tire and radioed for help. The vehicle was pulled over near Lemon Grove Avenue and Broadway.

Jewell and Wineski were arrested and two firearms were recovered from inside the vehicle, weiss said.

Judge Herbert Exarhos ordered the defendants back to court on Nov. 2 to receive a trial date.
