SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A San Francisco couple faces murder charges for allegedly killing a man last week they suspected of pimping their teenage daughter.
The San Francisco Chronicle says Barry Gilton and his girlfriend Lupe Mercado appeared in court Wednesday on murder and other charges for the shooting death of 22-year-old Calvin Sneed. Both are being held on $2 million bail.
Police said once the couple found out their 17-year-old daughter might be a working prostitute for Sneed, they searched across the state for their child. Authorities believe the pair were responsible for a shooting last month where someone fired into Sneed's car in North Hollywood.
Sneed was shot and killed in San Francisco on June 4. Police believe Gilton was the shooter.
