Judge Expected to Make Decision in Shooting Death of Woman

13148794-d76a-4c8a-9ea0-d914914ae606A judge is expected to make a decision today as to whether the illegal immigrant charged in the shooting death of a woman on San Francisco’s waterfront earlier this summer should stand trial.  During yesterday’s session in the preliminary hearing for Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the judge watched a video taken by a tourist moments after Kate Steinle was shot.  Lopez-Sanchez is accused of firing the shot that hit and killed the 32-year-old who went to Cal Poly, as she walked along a pier with her father on July 1st.  The incident has focused attention on San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” policy and heated up the debate over illegal immigration.  Authorities say Lopez-Sanchez was deported from the United States five times and has a criminal history with seven prior felonies.
