Chinese Woman Posts $35M Bail in CA Murder Case

The $35 million bail in the case of Tiffany Lee is the highest in the history of San Mateo County, Ca.

A Chinese real estate scion charged with orchestrating the murder of her children’s father was released from a San Francisco area jail yesterday after posting $35 million bail, an unusual financial transaction that startled and angered the victim’s family and friends, the Associated Press reports. The $35 million bail is the highest in San Mateo County’s history. Tiffany Li will remain out of custody after family, friends and her mother’s business associates raised $4 million cash and pledged properties worth a combined $62 million to post her bail. Courts require double the bail amount when property is pledged instead of cash. Li, 31, is charged with directing her boyfriend and another man to kill Keith Green, 27, and dispose of his body, which was found in May with a bullet wound to the neck 80 miles north of the suburban San Francisco mansion he and Li once shared with their two young daughters.
