A California woman who allegedly killed the father of her two kids posted her unheard of $35 million bail with help from wealthy friends, family and business associates with ties to China, CBS News reports.
Tiffany Li is backed by a group that raised $4 million cash and pledged $62 million in San Francisco Bay Area property. Because Li is offering homes and business buildings to secure her $35-million bail, he said, the equity in the property must be twice that amount.
Li must remain on round-the-clock electronic monitoring.
Carr, Li's attorney, said he was concerned about his client because she has received many angry letters and death threats complaining about her making bail.
A Peninsula woman accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend is expected on Thursday to post $35 million in bail - the eighth highest amount ever paid in United States history. Green was last seen with Li on April 28 at the Millbrae Pancake House, where both of them were discussing a custody dispute over their children, according to prosecutors. "Nothing seems right about it at all", said Keith Green close family friend Angela Dunn. "And we believe that was one of the pieces at the core of what led to the end of the life of Keith Green".
San Mateo's District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said he feared Li was a flight risk and had asked for bail to be set at $100m (£80.2m). The precautions to prevent her escape back to perhaps, China, where her family is are going to be at the very heart of Thursday's hearing.
Mr Carr said he expects Li to be freed pending her murder trial in September.
Li was arrested several days later in the multimillion-dollar home she shared with her children in Hillsborough, a suburb of mansions and large houses 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of San Francisco.
The two men also were arrested in May and were jailed without bail.
Wearing a baseball cap, with her hood up and head down murder suspect Tiffany Li exited the San Mateo County Jail without saying anything to reporters. If she violates the terms of her bail, the cash and properties offered up will be turned over to the county.
Tiffany Li is seen in an undated photo released by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department.
