California woman posts $35 million bail in husband’s death

A California woman is due to be released today on a record $35 million bail in the murder of her husband and father of her two children. She is said to have feared loss of custody. Tiffany Li raised the enormous sum through wealthy friends, family and business associates with ties to China. Li was arrested last year in Hillsborough, a wealthy suburb 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of San Francisco. Her attorney says people connected to her mother raised $4 million in cash and pledged $62 million property. California requires twice the bail amount if property is used instead of cash. She must remain on house arrest and submit to round-the-clock electronic monitoring until her September trial if she’s released Thursday.
