Casey Michael Tschida is charged with murder in the Jan. 3, 2013, death of 30-year-old Jennifer Krajnak. According to the District Attorney's Office, the 34-year-old defendant faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted.
Prosecutor Gordon Davis said at an earlier hearing that Tschida and Krajnak were together for about three hours at Dirk's Niteclub on Broadway, beginning around 10:30 p.m. Jan. 2, 2013.
Tschida left the bar about 1:30 a.m., returned 15 minutes later with his car's headlights off and shot Krajnak in the head as she crossed the street toward her nearby apartment, Davis alleged. A possible motive was not disclosed.
Krajnak died a half-hour after being shot.
Three days later, San Diego County sheriff's homicide investigators announced that Tschida had been arrested in Happy Valley, Ore., where his mother lives.
