Drifters who allegedly killed tourist and hiker set to be arraigned

Two drifters charged with murder for allegedly killing a tourist in Golden Gate Park and a hiker in Fairfax last year are set to be arraigned today in Marin County Superior Court.

Lila Alligood, 19, and Morrison Lampley, 24, are set to enter a plea following their preliminary hearing, which ended with the judge ruling there is enough evidence for them to stand trial on multiple charges including murder, robbery and theft.

The charges stem from the deaths of Canadian tourist Audrey Carey, 23, who was shot dead in Golden Gate Park on Oct. 2, 2015, and Steven Carter, 67, who was fatally shot on a hiking trail in Fairfax in Marin County on Oct. 5, 2015.

Their former co-defendant, Sean Angold, 24, testified for the prosecution during the preliminary hearing, which ended in late September, as part of his plea deal.

Angold, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, said during the preliminary hearing that he had only known Lampley and Alligood for a
few weeks prior to the murders, and that the killings were carried out while the trio were engaged in a sleepless, methamphetamine-fueled haze.
