SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Three murder suspects appeared in Marin County court on Monday to answer charges in connection with the shooting deaths of a beloved yoga teacher and a Canadian tourist in Golden Gate Park.

All three defendants showed up to court but the proceedings were brief.

Lila Alligood is still awaiting representation and counsel for the two other defendants said they needed more time to go over the discovery.

Alligood, Morrison Lampley and Sean Angold are the three drifters accused of killing Steve Carter and Audrey Carey.

It wasn't until they were arrested in Portland days later and a gun was discovered in their car that the two crimes were linked.

The public defender explains why he can't discuss the case for now. "Meanwhile, the judge has issued a gag order so I am prevented from making any statements on the case," Dep. Public Defender Pedro Oliveros said.

The media won't be allowed to talk to anyone regarding this case but the judge did say she hoped to allow cameras inside the courtroom for the preliminary hearing.

The public defender said he had doubts if the arraignment would even take place on Thursday, again saying that they needed more time.
