The defense attorney in a high-profile triple-murder case says San Francisco police have continued a smear campaign against his client, Edwin Ramos.
The accusation was made by attorney Robert Amparan following a hearing Wednesday. Judge Lucy McCabe denied a defense motion to prevent prosecutors and police from publicly discussing the murder case.
Ramos, 21, a suspected gang member from El Sobrante, has pleaded not guilty to gunning down a father and two of his sons in the Excelsior district June 22. Homicide detectives Monday said Ramos allegedly shot the victims because he thought they were rival gang members.
