CORRECTED UPDATE, MAY 9, 12:25 P.M.: Today's trial for three accused of conspiracy and the attempted murder of a Fountain Valley man by machete was recessed again until at least tomorrow.

Michael Calvin Shores II experienced the pains and shortness of breath during Friday's opening statements and was sent to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana. The judge called a recess until today, but doctors informed him Shores still needs to undergo a stress test, so the resumption of the trial is now scheduled Tuesday morning.

Shores is accused of conspiring with his 48-year-old lover to hire his butcher friend to murder her husband, who sustained a fractured skull, a severed thumb and fingers, a sliced nose and multiple machete cuts in a March 2009 attack in an alley near his home.

Like his co-defendants, Shores could get life in state prison if convicted of all the charges against him.

Defense attorneys are painting the victim, 47-year-old Frank Richard Sharpski, as a physical abuser of his wife Mary Katheryn Sharpski, and the lawyer for butcher Antonio Cinco Ortega denies the 25-year-old Santa Ana resident carried out the attack, reports the Orange County Register.

ORIGINAL POST, MAY 4, 8:12 A.M.: Trial begins today for a 48-year-old Fountain Valley woman, her unemployed security guard lover and a butcher they allegedly hired to kill her husband with a machete.

To add further to the you-can't-make-shit-like-this-up nature of the case, the last name of the victim who was left nearly dead from dozens of machete cuts, a severed nose and several of his fingers amputated is Sharpski.

Frank and Mary Katheryn Sharpski were married with three children. Michael Calvin Shores II lost his job and needed a place to stay. The Sharpskis took the 40-year-old in.

But by the spring of 2009, Shores and Mrs.
Sharpski had become lovers. They are accused of conspiring to knock off Mr. Sharpski so Shores could take over as head of the family.

They allegedly convinced Shores' good friend,
butcher Antonio Cinco Ortega, 25, of Santa Ana, to bump off the hubby in exchange for cash, providing him with information on the victim's daily route.

In the early morning of March 3, 2009, Ortega is accused of attacking Frank Sharpski in an alley outside of the Sharpski home with a machete. Sharpski's skull was fractured, a thumb and fingers were severed, his nose was sliced off and he suffered several other machete wounds as he was left to die.

What saved Sharpski were his screams, which alerted neighbors to call the Fountain Valley Police Department. Officers arrived in the alley at 5:50 a.m. to find Sharpski on the ground near the carports bleeding severely and semi-conscious. He was rushed to a hospital, where he narrowly survived after undergoing several surgeries.

Prosecutors claim forensic evidence found at the crime scene first pointed them to Ortega before the murder-for-hire plot was unraveled.

Each member of the trio are charged with one felony count of attempted murder, one felony count of conspiracy to commit murder, one felony count of mayhem, and a sentencing enhancement for great bodily injury.

Ortega faces an additional sentencing enhancement for the personal use of a deadly weapon.

Each could get life in state prison if convicted of all charges.
Opening statements begin today in Santa Ana.

Ok Mike was gonna take over being head of the family without a job.......UMMMMM!!!! don't you have to have a job to support a family.....

Too bad for Antonio he got caught up with Mike, when he was younger his amibitions were so high and because he befriended messed up people and his mind got warped he is now looking at a life sentence....

Sad part about this whole situation, all Mary had to do was file for divorce, HELLO!!!!!!!!

A man was brutally attacked and yet some of you are hung up on the fact that Mary Sharpski is not "attractive" according to YOUR standards...as if her being "hot" would make the attack on her husband acceptable!

There has to be large quantities of drugs or alcohol involved as what moron would consider that skanky female worth going to prison for OR having sex with after seeing her face in the daylight?

Antonio is innocent......he was set up. I am a personal friend of his and I know his character and his beliefs....he is no where near capable of said crimes and I know he will be released cause he is innocent. As far as the trash talk believe what you. This trial will show his innocence.

he may have been a good person at 1 time, but all i remember is him thinking he was some kind of black magic guy and playing d & D w/shores. and he started out being shores sister best friend. from what i have read about the trial they are trying to make him a good guy, but not no more he was doing speed , drinking and thinkin he was supper bad. this is what happens.. so lesson is stay in school and dont let your kids hang out with looser at all hours of the night, keep a better eye on what they are doing.

in regards to hearing about them being tweekers that came from michael shores sister heather, and she is supposed to be antonios best friend. what a joke she is just obsessed with him and wants him to be her boyfriend and he dont want that. what a bunch of loosers. and the saddest part is the children involved.
