ship warehouse fire in 2016. we get new developments now from ktvu crime reporter henry lee. almena's wife was also in court today. >> reporter: yes. this was the first time we have seen her in court in recent months and both she and the defense say these two men have nothing to do with the tragic fire and shouldn't be facing charges. a judge denied a motion by derick almena and max harris to toss the 36 involuntary manslaughter charges they each face, one count for each victim who died in the ghost ship fire. >> the odds of winning that are always very low. >> reporter: so now the defense says they will try to prove that evidence from the fire was dumped and destroyed or went missing after the warehouse was released back to property owner chor ng. ng isn't facing any criminal charges. >> the owner, who is -- everybody understands, the public understands, she has some culpability here. the owner is essentially like giving the murder weapon back to the murder suspect. >> reporter: ng has declined our requests for comment but someone who will talk at trial is almena himself. >> so mr. almena will be testifying.
6:01 pm
and he will be testifying on his own behalf. he is the one that knows the most about what has occurred. >> reporter: most defense attorneys don't want their clients on the stand. it's a legal strategy that carries risks because the d.a. will want to grill him on cross-examination. but serra disagrees. >> i think that his testimony alone will raise reasonable doubt. >> reporter: and the defense has been raising doubt from the very beginning about the d.a.'s case saying there's no evidence tying either defendant to the fire. and investigators still don't know what started the deadly fire. >> you don't have evidence, how do you prosecute somebody? you don't have a cause of a fire, how do you prosecute somebody? >> reporter: almena's wife made a rare appearance in court in support of her husband. >> i haven't seen my husband for a long time. good to see him again. i'm really disappointed that the motion to dismiss today has been tossed. i don't think that was right. i don't think it was --i don't feel this whole thing is just.
6:02 pm
>> reporter: trial now set for july 16th. harris will be back in court this month to try to get his bail reduced from $750,000. henry lee, ktvu fox 2 news. >> thank you. we are following developing news on this friday evening involving a major crash on the san mateo bridge. all eastbound lanes have reopened within the past hour. these pictures obviously were taken a little bit earlier. from skyfox, you can see three cars were involved one of them a ferrari, another a nissan and another a van. the crash happened about 3 p.m. and took more than an hour to clear. as you might imagine, it led to a huge backup on this friday afternoon. traffic on the bridge was at a standstill from 3 p.m. on with all eastbound lanes closed until about 4 p.m.
6:03 pm
traffic finally started to move just about an hour ago. from our drive time map, though, you can see that there's still a backup with all the red there. those are the eastbound lanes on the san mateo bridge. so this is a little yellow there but it's still a big backup on this friday night. the chp says fortunately there don't appear to be major injuries despite significant damage to two of the cars. earlier today a high-speed chase and crash shut down the 24 ramp to highway 13 on the oakland-berkeley city line. an audi suv with five teens inside crashed after going through the caldecott tunnel about 3:30 this morning. the chase began on westbound highway 4 in pittsburg where officers saw the driver of that audi was racing a corvette at speeds up to 120 miles an hour. chp officers saw the audi -- say, rather, the audi suv took the exit from 24 too fast and crashed into the median. no one was hurt. officers took all five teens
6:04 pm
into custody. the driver was a 17-year-old with no driver's license. two auto burglary suspects involved in a police shooting in san francisco are in custody tonight. police arrested 21-year-old herschel hale and 23-year-old maurice jones early this morning. police say an officer fired shots at the two suspects during an auto burglary investigation near geary and steiner in the fillmore district. no one was hit. but police say at one point, one of the suspects rammed a police car. the debate over san francisco's sanctuary city status is stirring up new controversy tonight. as christien kafton tells us, angela alioto wants to make sure convicted felons don't benefit from the city's sanctuary laws. reporter: san francisco's sanctuary status has put it on the forefront of the nation's debate on immigration. now one san francisco mayoral candidate is looking to take the idea to the voters. angela alioto says she wrote the city's original sanctuary rules. but she says over the years,
6:05 pm
the rules have changed and the way they stand now, she says convicted felons benefit from the city's policy. >> i have gone all over the city in the last five months and we talk about the sanctuary law and the fact that felons are included in the sanctuary law, the public is outraged! >> reporter: that's why she wants to take the issue to the voters. she wants to put an initiative on the november ballot to exclude felons from sanctuary protection. alioto's call has stirred debate in the city with mayor mark farrell saying on "mornings on 2" that the would- be mayor's initiative is off base and out of touch with san francisco values. >> i say don't attack our community and our immigrants here in san francisco. don't buy into the donald trump rhetoric. in san francisco, we support our immigrant community and we always have. and we always will. >> reporter: joining mayor farrell in his opinion, state senator scott weiner and san francisco district attorney george gascon. the senator and district attorney held a joint press conference to push for senate bill 785, which would prevent attorneys from asking witnesses or victims about their immigration status on the stand unless a judge said it was relevant. they say amending the city's sanctuary rules would make the city a more dangerous place, not safer. >> and so i call on angela
6:06 pm
alioto to cut it out, to stop, to back away, focus on the real issues in our city. >> i support the comments that senator weiner made concerning a candidate here in the city of trying to unwind sanctuary city. >> reporter: alioto says city leaders are at best mischaracterizing her position. >> it's dishonest. they can read. both of them are lawyers. i attached the ordinance, attached the 13 pages. and i attached the petition. >> reporter: alioto says she is committed to seeing this through and seeing that ballot measure in november. to do that she says she needs 9400 signatures by mid-july. she says she is hoping to get 14,000 signatures. in san francisco, christien kafton, ktvu fox 2 news.
