Parents accused of killing daughter’s pimp in San Francisco

Lee Romney and Maria L. La Ganga in San Francisco (Los Angeles Times) | June 15, 2012

In a criminal complaint that has stunned friends and relatives, the San Francisco district attorney’s office claims a couple killed their 17-year-old daughter’s pimp, a Compton gang member.

Barry Laprell Gilton and Lupe Mercado tried to persuade the teenager to break ties with 22-year-old Calvin Sneed. They sought help from law enforcement to no avail and later added the girl’s name to several missing and exploited children registries, according to their lawyers.

And that, their lawyers said, was where they left it.

But prosecutors contend that on the night of May 27, along Vineland Avenue in North Hollywood, they tried to kill him and failed.

A second attempt, not far from the couple’s home near San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, succeeded. Sneed, officials said, was gshot to death in his car on June 4 at 2 a.m. by Gilton, who allegedly fired a .40-caliber weapon from a silver Mercedes-Benz SUV.
