The three young drifters who allegedly killed a yoga instructor in Fairfax and a Canadian tourist in Golden Gate Park last month have pled not guilty, Kron 4 reports.

Morrison Lampley, 23, Sean Angold, 24, and Lila Alligood, 18, were charged with first degree murder by the Marin County District Attorney’s office. (Although Lampley was identified as the shooter.) Per Kron 4, the scheduled arraignment date was postponed because one of the suspects hadn’t been assigned a court-appointed attorney.

After shooting 67-year-old yoga teacher Steve Carter on a hiking trail, the trio stole his car and drove to Portland, Ore., where they were apprehended by police. Carter's dog, Coco, was also shot but survived; Lampley faces a charge of animal cruelty.

The murder of 23-year-old Audrey Carey in Golden Gate Park during the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival put the Haight on edge, and stoked angry community meetings and a "zero tolerance" crackdown from Park Station police, which is still in full effect. 

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May. If convicted, the three face the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
