An arraignment for three defendants accused of the recent killings of a Canadian woman in Golden Gate Park and a hiker in Marin County was postponed on Thursday for the third time.

Judge Kelly Vieira Simmons set a Nov. 19 arraignment hearing in Marin County Superior Court for defendants Morrison Haze Lampley, 23, Sean Michael Angold, 24, and Lila Scott Alligood, 18. All face first-degree murder charges in the deaths of Audrey Carey, 23, and Steve Carter, 67.

Although there were previously questions in the case about whether a media gag order would be put in place, the judge determined such an order would not be necessary. Still, no cameras are permitted in the courtroom for the time being, until the judge determines otherwise.

Carey’s body, which had a gunshot to the head, was found the morning of Oct. 3 in Golden Gate Park. The night before she had attended the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in the park. Carter, who was also shot, was found two days later on a Fairfax hiking trail.
