In July, the 34-year-old Winslow Jr. was ordered to stand trial in a separate case in which he is accused in the rape and kidnapping of two women -- a 59-year-old and a 54-year-old -- in Encinitas.

The son for former Chargers legend Kellen Winslow pleaded not guilty in that case.

Winslow Jr. faces life in prison if convicted in the case.
