Boyfriend to trial for woman’s murder
June 12, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Albert Trejo

A San Bruno man whose girlfriend’s body was found at a Pacifica apartment complex two months after her mother reported her missing will stand trial for murder.

Albert Antonio Trejo, 50, is also charged with using a gun to kill 36-year-old Cecilia Zamora sometime in February 2013. Zamora was determined to have been shot once in the back of the head.

Trejo has pleaded not guilty to all charges but was held to answer Wednesday after a multi-day preliminary hearing on the evidence. He returns to court July 2 to enter a Superior Court plea and possibly set a trial date.

Zamora was last reported seen the morning of Feb. 13 and her decomposed body not found until April 26 in the storage area of an apartment complex on Gateway Drive in Pacifica. She was killed by a single gun shot to the back of the head.

The couple lived with several others in San Bruno and one reported that on Feb. 13 Trejo called him, possibly crying, and talking about his gun having gone off. When the other residents got home, Trejo reportedly was doing laundry and told them Zamora left after the pair had an argument, according to prosecutors.

Trejo was in federal custody on unrelated charges in late August when authorities issued an arrest warrant for Zamora’s murder.

He remains in custody without bail.
