Chicago girl's parents to sit with first lady
Tuesday - 2/12/2013, 4:02am EST
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A White House official says the parents of a Chicago teenager slain just days after performing during President Barack Obama's inauguration will attend his State of the Union speech.
Hadiya Pendleton, 15, was shot to death Jan. 29 in a park close to the Obama's Chicago home. Police say a gunman hopped a fence and opened fire on a group of young people. She was a majorette with the King College Prep band.
First lady Michelle Obama attended Hadiya's funeral in Chicago on Saturday. Her parents, Cleopatra and Nathaniel Pendleton, will sit with the first lady during Tuesday's speech, which is expected to mention gun violence.
Their attendance was first reported by the Chicago Tribune. The White House official spoke on condition of anonymity because the guest list has not been announced.
