OAKLAND -- A reputed San Francisco gang member has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting last April of his mother's boyfriend, police said Wednesday.

Deneal Bobo Jr., 20, is charged with killing Marques Crosley, 30, who was fatally shot April 9, 2012 inside his house in the 1200 block of 60th Avenue. His body was found later in the day by Bobo's mother, police said.

Police said Bobo denied killing Crosley and being at the house that day.

Officer Leo Sanchez said a combination of witnesses and other evidence led to Bobo being charged.

Police said Crosley, Bobo's mother and some of his siblings had moved from San Francisco to the 60th Avenue house in November 2011. Sanchez said Crosley was alone in the house about 11 a.m. the day of the shooting, when Bobo showed up after being driven there from San Francisco by others.

The two had an argument about another member of Bobo's family and Crosley was shot, Sanchez said. Bobo fled and Crosley was found dead by Bobo's mother about 5:30 p.m., police said.

Bobo was arrested in San Francisco March 8 on a probable cause warrant accusing him of the killing. He also was booked for possessing the drug Ecstasy. He was charged with Crosley's killing on April 2. He was being held without bail at the San Francisco County Jail and could be arraigned as early as Thursday in Alameda County Superior Court on the murder charge.
