A judge has set bail at $1 million for the Turlock homeowner facing murder charges for the July 2013 shooting death of Brandon Pacheco.
Robin Duane Boyer, 60, remains in custody at the Stanislaus County Jail after Monday’s arraignment where the bail was set.
In addition to the $1 million bail, Boyer is not permitted to possess any firearms if he does make bail, according to Stanislaus County Court Services Manager Stephanie Mitchell.
The killing of Pacheco has been an ongoing investigation since July of 2013, when Boyer shot Pacheco in the head.
On March 6, Turlock police took Boyer into custody and was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail for murder.
According to the criminal complaint, which was filed on March 5, Boyer “personally and intentionally discharged a firearm and proximately caused great bodily injury or death to Brandon Pacheco.”
Boyer previously told police that he shot Pacheco after seeing him trespass on his property several times leading up to that fateful day. It is believed Boyer saw Pacheco on his property the morning of the shooting and confronted him.
It remains unclear if Boyer shot Pacheco on his own property. Initial police reports said Pacheco was shot in a field near Boyer’s property, but the exact location of the shooting has not been officially released.
Pacheco had prior convictions for grand theft, commercial burglary and methamphetamine possession in the months leading up to his death.
