3 suspects in killing of yoga teacher, backpacker set to be arraigned

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (KGO) -- Two touching prayer services were held Tuesday to honor a pair of Bay Area murder victims.

Sean Angold, Lila Alligod and Morrison Lampley are accused of murdering a Canadian tourist in San Francisco and a hiker in Marin County. They'll make their first court appearance Wednesday.

According to the criminal complaint filed by the Marin County District Attorney's office, 23-year-old Morrison Haze Lampley is the accused trigger man in Steve Carter's murder. All three are charged with murdering Canadian tourist Audrey Carey.

In Golden Gate Park Tuesday a prayer vigil was held in her honor. She was found beaten and shot to death there Oct. 3. Father Daniel Nacimento said he hopes her family in Montreal knows that residents in the city of Saint Francis are honoring her.

Steve Posin and his dog Maggie are in Golden Gate Park nearly every day. Posin said he believes he met two of the accused killers. He recognized Alligood's frizzy hair.

"A week and a half ago or something, they were sitting at the table, a woman and a man. We had a few pleasant words about the dog, about my dog," Posin said.

Alligood has since shaved her head.

At a hiking trail near Fairfax, about a dozen friends of the second victim Steve Carter paid their respects this morning.

"We're going to sing our prayers and say our prayers for all the people who were, who are affected by this," said Carter's friend Kacey Carmichael.

The group formed a semi-circle around a collection of flowers and pictures marking where Carter was found shot to death. He was still hanging on to his dog's leash. He had just returned to the Bay Area to care for his wife who's battling cancer. They had prayers for his wife and the three accused.

If convicted, the three suspects could face the death penalty.
