Anthony Gumina was arrested Friday on an outstanding no-bail warrant for domestic violence, according to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office, but the charges were upgraded to include homicide after detectives found remains they believe to be his missing wife.


Heather Gumina, a 33-year-old mother of three, was reported missing July 19 after she was released from the hospital following treatment for a broken collarbone.

“My daughter was one of the most giving, loyal people I’ve ever known,” her mother, Joanna Russel, told Fox 40. "I’m going to grieve for a very long time. It’s like the world’s worst nightmare.”

El Dorado police did not release information on Anthony Gumina’s arrest, but shared a photo of him handcuffed, sitting on a curb with a dog on his lap
