Ex-Girlfriend, 2 Others Charged With Murder In Millbrae Man's Death

MILLBRAE (CBS SF) – A woman and two men have been charged with murder for the death of a Millbrae man reported missing last month whose body turned up in Sonoma County 13 days later, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Tiffany Li, 30, her boyfriend, 29-year-old Kaveh Bayat, and a friend of theirs, 40-year-old Olivier Adella, have all been charged with murder in the death of 27-year-old Keith Green. They were scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Tuesday afternoon, San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Al Serrato said.

Li, Green's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his two children, and Bayat were arrested when sheriff's deputies served a search warrant at their home in the 600 block of West Santa Inez Avenue in Hillsborough on Saturday morning, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

Adella was arrested during a raid in the 1800 block of Trousdale Drive in Burlingame on Friday afternoon. While sheriff's officials have said Adella was a friend of both Li and Green, they have not disclosed what connected him to the killing.

Green was reported missing by his roommate a day after meeting with Li at the Millbrae Pancake House on April 28. He had left his wallet and car at home and had only his cellphone with him.

A hiker found Green's cellphone in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park the day that he was reported missing. He remained missing until May 11, when a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy working with a homeless outreach team found his decomposing body down an embankment off a dirt road near U.S.  Highway 101 north of Healdsburg.

The Sonoma County coroner's office used dental records to identify Green's body. Once they discovered it was Green, the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office opened a homicide investigation.

Investigators have not said how Green was killed or what they suspect motivated Li, Bayat and Adella in the killing.

Anyone with information about Green's disappearance or death has been asked to call sheriff's Detective John Carroll at (650) 259-2313 or the sheriff's office tip line at (800) 547-2700.
