El Salvador immigrant to stand trial for killings

El Salvador immigrant to stand trial for killings

An illegal immigrant from El Salvador will stand trial for murder in the deaths of a father and his two sons in a drive-by shooting in San Francisco.
Judge Teri Jackson said Monday there's sufficient evidence for 22-year-old Edwin Ramos to be tried for the June 2008 killings.
Police allege Ramos belongs to the violent MS-13 gang and mistook the younger victims for rivals. Slain were 48-year-old Tony Bologna and his sons, 20-year-old Michael and 16-year-old Matthew.
Ramos has said he drove the getaway car but wasn't the shooter.
An uproar was sparked over San Francisco's immigration policy that allowed Ramos to stay in the U.S. even though he had been charged with violent felonies as a minor. City officials have since closed that loophole.
