Man Arrested For Murder Of Man Who Died 8 Months After Suffering Head Injuries

Posted on Saturday, December 17, 2011 1:09pm


Oxnard Police say they’ve arrested a man for murder, in the case of a man who died eight months after suffering head injuries in a domestic dispute.

In January of 2011, Steven Proefrock suffered serious head injuries at an Oxnard home.  The 51 year old man was taken to the Ventura County Medical Center, and eventually transferred to a long term care facility in Santa Barbara.  Froefrock died there in September.

The Santa Barbara County Coroner’s Office reviewed the man’s medical records, and determined he died as a result of the injuries he suffered in the January assault.

As a result, Oxnard Police arrested Dominic Pinkard.  Pinkard was already in custody at the Ventura County Jail on unrelated charges when  he was arrested for the murder.
