There are special circumstances surrounding the murder charges against Sean Michael Angold, 24, Morrison Haze Lampley, 23, and Lila Scott Alligood, 18 - all of no fixed abode - because they have been accused of lying in wait for the victims which makes them eligible for the death penalty, according to the District Attorney's Office.
Marin County District Attorney's office says that it has filed the first-degree murder charges against the three defendants who are suspected of shooting a hiker in Marin County as well as a woman from Quebec, Canada, whose body was discovered in the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Defendant Morrison Haze Lampley also faces the charges of possession of a stolen firearm and being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. San Francisco Police Commander Toney Chaplin claims that the same firearm was used in both of the killings.
Audrey Carey, 23, was found with a gunshot wound to her head in one of Golden Gate Park's wooded areas in the early hours of October 3rd. She was on a backpacking trip and is thought to have been camping in the park after attending the free, three-day Hardly Strictly Bluegrass music festival. This was her first solo backpacking trip and she was on her way to Europe where she would have met with relatives, according to her parents.
All three defendants are required to appear in court to answer the charges that have been made against them at some point this week. It is not clear if they have retained lawyers.
