EL CAJON (CNS) - A Superior Court arraignment was postponed Thursday to Sept. 6 for a mother of two accused of trying to run down a woman with her SUV because the victim was romantically involved with the father of her children.
Beverly Gligo, 36, is charged with assault, battery and making a criminal threat and faces four years and eight months in prison if convicted. A trial date should be set next month.
Melissa Bone testified at a preliminary hearing earlier this month that she was driving on El Nopal in Lakeside about 3:30 p.m. on June 6 when she noticed two women fighting in the street.
One woman, identified as Raylien Paschke, got off Gligo and walked away, and the defendant got into her SUV and drove up a nearby driveway toward Paschke, who was then walking with a man, Bone testified.
Paschke was struck in the leg and knocked into a wire fence. The man with whom she was walking was not hurt.
Paschke testified that she met the father of Gligo's children, Christopher Hartmann, last September and had no idea until Christmas that he was in a relationship with Gligo.
The victim said she talked with Gligo on the phone and communicated on Facebook, and Gligo challenged her to fight.
On June 6, Paschke said she was checking the mail at the Lakeside home where she was living when Gligo pulled up and confronted her.
Paschke said she restrained Gligo, socked her in the face, then pushed her away. As she walked away and up the driveway, Paschke said Gligo got in her car and slammed into her.
Paschke said she was knocked unconscious, then woke up and heard the defendant screaming that she was going to kill her. Gligo then tried to leave, but her SUV became wedged between a tree and a fence post.
Defense attorney Anthony Solare contends the alleged victim was the aggressor in the fight.
