Trio charged with murder in Golden Gate Park, Marin slayings

Three suspects were charged with murder last Friday and could face the death penalty in connection with the killings of a Canadian backpacker in Golden Gate Park and a hiker in Marin County earlier this month, according to the Marin County District Attorney’s Office.

The murder charges against Morrison Haze Lampley, 23, Sean Michael Angold, 24, and Lila Scott Alligood, 18, are enhanced by special circumstances, the District Attorney’s Office said Monday.

Those circumstances are for murder after lying in wait, which means hiding with a plan to surprise the victims, and murder while involved in a robbery.

Audrey Carey, 23, was found shot in the head in a wooded area of Golden Gate Park early on the morning of Oct. 3 after attending the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. She is believed to have been camping in the park while on a backpacking trip from her native Quebec, Canada.

Then two days later, yoga teacher Steve Carter, 67, was found shot dead on a hiking trail west of Fairfax in Marin County. He had been shot multiple times and his car had been stolen. His dog had been shot as well, but was not killed.

The suspects are believed to have used pistol stolen from a car in the area of Fisherman’s Wharf in both homicides. They were arrested in Oregon last week and are set to be booked into Marin County Jail Monday.

In addition to murder, the suspects are accused of charges related to robbery, vehicle theft, possessing a stolen vehicle and stolen property and animal cruelty, the District Attorney’s Office said.

Lampley also faces charges for possession of a stolen firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

It’s unclear when they will be arraigned.
