11:20 a.m.

A San Francisco Bay Area real estate heiress whose family posted $35 million bail to keep her out of jail has been acquitted of killing the father of her children.

After deliberating for 12 days, jurors said Friday that Tiffany Li is not guilty of conspiring with her boyfriend to kill 27-year-old Keith Green in 2016.

The case drew global attention when Li’s family, who made a fortune in real estate construction in China, posted $35 million bail for her.

Green’s body was found along a dirt road north of San Francisco nearly two weeks after he was last seen meeting with Li to discuss custody of their children.

Prosecutors say Li was worried over the custody dispute.
