Man Suspected of Killing Bernal Heights Woman Has Bail Set at $1M

A San Francisco Superior Court judge set bail at $1 million today for a 48-year-old man arrested Tuesday on suspicion of killing a 42-year-old woman who lived with him in the city’s Bernal Heights neighborhood, according to the district attorney’s office.

San Francisco police arrested Jules Sibilio on suspicion of murder for the death of 42-year-old Mary Atchison, San Francisco police Officer Albie Esparza said.

Emergency crews responded to a medical call at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 500 block of Peralta Avenue and found an unresponsive body there, police said.

Esparza said the victim had suffered trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fire officials notified the Police Department that the death was possibly suspicious and homicide investigators took over the case, police said.

Sibilio’s arraignment today was rescheduled for Tuesday, according to the district attorney’s office.

The death remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call police at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the beginning of the message.
