siblings arrested, accused of attempting to murder their mother – Monterey Herald


SALINAS – A brother and sister were arrested last week for attempting to murder their mother in a residence off the Monterey-Salinas Highway, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office.

On Jan. 19, at around 9:30 p.m., Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 1000 block of the Monterey-Salinas Highway in Salinas on a report of a family disturbance, investigators said in a press release. During the investigation, deputies developed probable cause to believe Whitney Stolich, 47 of Topanga, had attempted to murder her mother. Whitney Stolich was later arrested and initially booked into the Monterey County jail on attempted murder charges.

Further investigation also led detectives to believe James Stolich, 51 of San Francisco, was involved in the incident. James Stolich and Whitney Stolich are siblings, Monterey County Undersheriff Keith Boyd confirmed Tuesday.

James Stolich was arrested in Monterey County for criminal conspiracy, attempted murder and elder abuse. Bail for James Stolich and Whitney Stolich was initially set at $2 million.

Asked about the status of the siblings’ mother, Boyd said “we are not releasing any specifics on the victim.”

This is an ongoing investigation.

Any member of the community with information about this investigation can contact Detective Michael Smith at 831-755-3762  or Detective Sergeant Nicholas Kennedy at 831-755-3786.
