Meet Carl Trinchero’s wife: Stephanie Will and their children
Carlo Trinchero married Stephanie Will, his girlfriend of five years, in 2017. However, the couple filed for divorce in June 2022, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. Stephanie, Carl’s estranged wife, filed for a restraining order based on the latest arrest. She asked the court to extend the preliminary protection order, which expired in October.
She said that Karlo kept drugs and firearms under the same roof as their two- and three-year-old girls. Carl was banned from owning a firearm after he was arrested for domestic violence on May 15, 2016, when he slammed his wife into a closet, causing her to bleed out and require medical attention. He also assaulted and threatened a paramedic who arrived at the couple’s St Helena residence. In February 2017, he pleaded no contest to domestic abuse charges and was sentenced to six months in prison and three years of probation. “The children were exposed to Carl’s anger and volatile behaviour,” Stephanie, 31, said in her appeal. She further said that he was a danger to their well-being and her safety.
