  • Robert E. Graves, 66, has been charged with murder in connection with the killing of Geoffrey Greer.

Bail was set at $3 million Tuesday for the man accused of shooting to death a 24-year-old neighbor last weekend during a dispute at their Nob Hill apartment complex.

Robert E. Graves, 66, has been charged with murder in connection with the killing of Geoffrey Greer about 2:30 a.m. Saturday at a building in the 1100 block of Pacific Avenue. Graves is listed in public records as living at 1135 Pacific Ave.

Graves, who remains in custody, is expected to enter a plea Thursday, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.
Investigators have been tight-lipped about a motive for The City’s 12th homicide of the year. Greer was apparently involved in a dispute with Graves before the shooting occurred.

Greer worked as a senior associate in The City for the global media agency MEC, according to a company spokeswoman, and was described by co-workers as “smart, hard-working and well-loved.”

Graves is the author of a book titled “The Art of Psychic Dice,” which reportedly details how a craps player can use psychokinesis to gain favorable outcomes.

The case was assigned to the Public Defender’s Office, as Graves apparently cannot afford his own attorney.
