After a preliminary hearing, San Luis Obispo County Superior Court Judge Craig van Rooyen held that there is sufficient evidence for Kejuan Guy Bynum to be tried for the murder of Cristopher Vento Wilson (23) that occurred in Shandon during the early evening of June 1, 2019.


District Attorney Dan Dow announced today that following an evidentiary hearing on Tuesday, December 4th, a Superior Court Judge has ruled that there is sufficient evidence for Kejuan Guy Bynum to be tried for the murder of Cristopher Vento Wilson (23) who was stabbed to death in Shandon during the early evening of June 1, 2019.

It is also alleged that Bynum personally used a knife during the homicide and that he was previously convicted of robbery which is a violent felony under Califonria's Three Strikes Law.  Bynum faces life in prison if convicted. 

Bynum is held without bail at the San Luis Obispo County Jail and is scheduled to return to court for further arraignment on December 18, 2019. 

This case was investigated by the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office and is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Delaney Henretty.

Every defendant is legally presumed innocent until proven guilty by proof beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
