Hearing on Guglielmelli deal postponed to Friday

A Canyon Country businessman accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill his model wife has five more days to decide whether to accept a plea deal offered to him.

Dino Roy Guglielmelli, looking gaunt and sporting a bright orange Los Angeles County jail jumpsuit, was escorted into San Fernando Superior Court Monday morning, his hands handcuffed to a chain around his waist.

He turned 53 years old Monday.

“The last time in court, the people extended an offer to Mr. Guglielmelli,” Deputy District Attorney Emily Cole told the court.

“I was going to take it off the table today if it was not taken,” she said. “But now I will keep the offer open.

“If, on Friday, he does not take the deal, it’s off the table,” Cole said.

The deadline for decision was postponed because Guglielmelli’s defense attorney, Anthony Brooklier, was not in court Monday.

Brooklier, who was working in another courtroom on a separate matter, had notified the judge he would send his partner, attorney Donald Marks, in his place. But Marks hadn’t previously dealt with Guglielmelli’s case.

Superior Court Judge Kathryne Ann Stolz ruled Brooklier should be present for his client’s decision on the deal.

No details about the deal extended to Guglielmelli have been revealed.

Guglielmelli was arrested Oct. 3 on suspicion of attempted murder, according to records from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

If he turns down the deal Friday, Guglielmelli is expected to stand trial on one count of attempted murder and one count of solicitation to commit a crime, according to the criminal complaint filed against him by prosecutors with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.

If convicted of attempted murder, he faces a possible sentence of life in prison.

Prosecutors allege Guglielmelli tried to hire Richard Fuhrmann to murder his wife, Monica Andreny, also known as Monica Olsen.
