January murder trial set for man accused of shooting girlfriend
July 18, 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 pleaded not guilty Thursday to murder and gun use charges.

After entering his plea in Superior Court, Albert Antonio Trejo, 50, was scheduled for jury trial Jan. 20.

Trejo is accused of shooting Cecilia Zamora, 36, once in the back of the head sometime in February 2013. Zamora was last reported seen the morning of Feb. 13 and her decomposed body not found until April 26, 2013, in the storage area of an apartment complex on Gateway Drive in Pacifica.

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 when arrested for Zamora’s murder.

He remains in custody without bail and returns to court Nov. 18 for a pretrial conference.
