Santa Clarita businessman now held on $10 million bail in murder-for-hire plot

Dino Roy Guglielmelli, 52, of Canyon Country, is now being held in lieu of $10 million bail for attempted murder and solicitation to commit murder. Judge Michael O’Gara reviewed the case Tuesday, December 10, 2013 and reversed the earlier ruling that Guglielmelli be held without bail.

Dino Guglielmelli is the owner and founder of Creations Garden, a vitamin supplements company in the Santa Clarita Valley. I interviewed Guglielmelli in early 2012 about his business philosophy and the growth of the company.

Reporter Perry Smith of KHTS radio noted there was concern from the deputy district attorney that Guglielmelli would try to flee the country, based on testimony from Richard Fuhrmann, who is the prosecution’s main witness.

Perry wrote, “Guglielmelli is being charged with two counts, attempted murder and solicitation to commit murder -- the prosecution is alleging that Guglielmelli believed he was paying Fuhrmann to have Guglielmelli’s wife, Monica Andreny, killed.

"Fuhrmann testified that he surreptitiously recorded several conversations with Guglielmelli, the CEO of Creation’s Garden, after he became concerned for Andreny.”

Fuhrmann had testified at a preliminary hearing that Guglielmelli said he would flee the country if he were ever investigated. No recording of that statement was ever produced.

Guglielmelli needs to raise $1 million in order to be freed from custody, according to officials with the District Attorney’s Office.

Guglielmelli is being housed at the North County Correctional Facility at the Pitchess Detention Center, and was still in custody as of 3 p.m. Tuesday. He is due back in court Dec. 18 to enter a plea on the charges.
