A man accused of killing two people in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley neighborhood in July pleaded not guilty today to murder charges, prosecutors said. Keith Wilkins, 23, is being held in lieu of $10 million bail in connection with the killings of Marche Daniels, 25, and Frederick Glaspie, 27, during an altercation shortly after 1 p.m. on July 30 in the first block of Burr Avenue, police said.

Wilkins will return to court on Friday to deal with an issue over whether the public defender’s office can represent him. Prosecutors argued that some witnesses in the case are already being represented by the public defender’s office but are declining to provide their names. Daniels and Glaspie were named in a city attorney’s document filed in support of a requested gang injunction in 2010 as alleged members of the Towerside street gang in Visitacion Valley.

The killings were part of a string of violence in the neighborhood, which saw multiple shooting deaths within a week in July. The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Sgts. William Braconi or Gary Watts with the Police Department’s homicide detail at (415) 553-1145.
