Today's arraignment of Cheyene Fuimaono
for allegedly murdering his girlfriend's toddler son reminded me that I wanted to slap together a list of 10 Orange Countians who proved to be really bad boyfriends in 2012.
Match.comming eHarmonizers take note of the results after the jump . . .
10.) DANIEL PATRICK WOZNIAK
Already on mayhem lists for his alleged slayings of 26-year-old Afghanistan combat vet Sammy Herr, who was executed and dismembered, and 23-year-old Julie Kibuishi, who was shot at point-blank range after sinisterly being lured to Herr's Costa Mesa apartment in 2010, local community theater actor Dan Wozniak pops up again for his role in dumping a world of shit on his onetime fiancee. Rachel Mae Buffett has pleaded not guilty to an accessory to murder charge that could send her to state prison for four years. Detectives claim the 25-year-old lied to them to protect her man, who now faces the death penalty. Buffett's family staunchly maintains she is innocent.

9.) MARK ALAN JAROSIK

Years ago, Chicago architect Mark Jarosik left his wife and children for a woman who was also married with kids at the time. They lived together in Las Vegas for four years before splitting up. The woman relocated to Ladera Ranch, and Jarosik followed, eventually prompting her to get a restraining order. Jarosik raped and
attempted to sodomize her anyway and was on parole for those crimes when
he tried to murder her a second time in 2009, banging her head against a
curb in her quiet neighborhood. His third murder attempt came from within jail, when he tried to recruit a fellow inmate to do the dirty deed. An Orange County Superior Court judge this month sentenced Jarosik--who puts the "sick" in "Jarosik"--to 31 years to life in state prison.

8.) JORGE LUNA

When Jorge Luna's girlfriend ended their relationship after two years in 2007, the then-18-year-old reacted by threatening to kill her, repeatedly striking her and nearly choking her out. When she came to and vowed to reconsider, he took her to a stairwell, raped her and then let her return to classes at Anaheim High School, where she alerted authorities. A jury later convicted Luna on various counts, and he was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison. But he appealed that conviction on grounds a count of kidnapping with the intent to rape was incorrect, that he'd actually kidnapped with the intent of murdering the girl. Luna also found 15 years too long to wait to go before the parole board. The state appeals court last fall essentially told Luna to pound sand--and finishing doing his time.

7.) JESUS DANIEL MONTES

It's possible that Jesus Montes brought his girlfriend along for the ride in black SUV that rolled up on 18-year-old Edgar Ortiz in Santa Ana on July 17 before a shot was fired and the teen was left to die on the pavement. Or, it could be that Veronica Ashley Wiist dragged Morales along, in which case we'd recommend her for the really bad girlfriends' list, not that we think you Match.commers should get involved with either. Both 22-year-olds and two juveniles police also place in the SUV are now facing murder and gang-crime counts.
