TWO ARRESTED ON CHARGES FROM BLOODY KNIFE FIGHT IN LANDERS LAST MONTH

A man and his mother were arrested Thursday, November 2, after a bloody knife fight in Landers last month. Deborah King, 51, called Sheriff’s deputies October 19 to the 800 block of Ducor Avenue when an argument between her son, Cory McGilloway, 28, and Kenneth Cook and Christopher Cook, turned violent. The Cooks and McGilloway all suffered multiple stab wounds and they were all taken to Desert Hospital in Palm Springs. The district attorney’s office issued a warrant October 26 for the arrest of Cory McGilloway for two counts of attempted murder, and for Deborah King for assault with a firearm. They were taken into custody about noon Thursday during a traffic stop near their home at Ducor and Reche Road in Landers. McGilloway and King pleaded not guilty in Joshua Tree Superior Court Friday, November 3. Cory McGilloway is being held at West Valley Detention Center on $2 million bail; Deborah King is being held on $400,000 bail.

  1. This guy and his mom came to my home in JT & bought a dog from me. 10 days later they called and said the dog was skin and bones and dying. I immediately drove 3 hours and took him back. He was cowering. It was obvious he was starved and beaten. They said that they came from Florida and didn’t like the law down there. This was back in March 2017. The woman said she was an alcoholic. They have horses on a ranch in Landers. I hope animal control got them and they are being taken care of. I have no idea why drug addicts, alcoholics, and violent people seem to think that they can come into our town and hide out in Landers and do as they please without getting caught. I seriously hope that they go back to wherever they came from in FL because the Morongo Basin is better off without them.

  2. People come out here and do whatever they want because they know there will be no law enforcement. The unincorporated San Bernardino County is an orphan. sheriff sends all his time and $$ catering to the incorporated areas that hire his service! It’s a Kalifornia thing…..
