A convicted robber was charged with murder today, Thursday, for the fatal shooting of 24-year-old Dustin Bynum in West Berkeley last month.

Krishna Ferreira, 23, of San Leandro, was arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland on the charge stemming from the death of Bynum in the 1800 block of San Pablo Avenue at about 9:15 p.m. on Aug. 1.

Ferreira, who was arrested in San Leandro on Tuesday, is being held at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin without bail.

In addition to murder, Ferreira was charged with discharging a firearm to cause Bynum's death, an enhancement clause that could add 25 years to his state prison term if he's convicted of murder.

Prosecutors also charged Ferreira with having a prior conviction for second-degree robbery on Aug. 6, 2012, another enhancement that could add to his prison term if he's convicted.
