SAN RAFAEL (CBS SF) – Marin County Superior Court Judge Kelly V. Simmons on Friday ordered two drifters to stand trial for a pair of killings during a robbery in Marin County and San Francisco a year ago.
Morrison Haze Lampley, 24, of San Francisco, and Lila Scott Alligood, 19, of San Rafael are accused of killing tourist Audrey Carey, 23, of Quebec in Golden Gate Park on Oct. 2, 2015, and sex therapist Steven Carter, 67, of Marin County on Oct. 5, 2015, on a park trail in Fairfax.
The murder charges also include special circumstances of lying in wait and committing multiple murders and committing murder during a robbery.
A third defendant charged with the murders, Sean Michael Angold, 25, of San Francisco, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and faces a 15-year prison sentence. He testified against Alligood and Lampley during the preliminary hearing.
Angold said he stole the gun used in the murders from an unlocked vehicle in San Francisco and helped plan the robberies, but said Lampley killed the victims. Angold said he and the defendants were using drugs, including LSD, heroin and methamphetamine, during the week they were traveling together in the Bay Area and Oregon where they were arrested Oct. 7, 2015.
The Marin County District Attorney’s Office alleges Lampley shot both victims. Defense attorneys David Brown and Amy Morton alleged Angold was the killer and he agreed to a plea bargain to avoid life in prison without parole.
The defense attorneys said it wasn’t clear who shot the gun, because according to Angold’s testimony all three defendants had held it at one point and they argued Angold’s testimony is unreliable. They said the defendants had no intention to kill but only rob the two victims.
