Hadiya Pendleton’s murder trial continues Wednesday

posted by Joe Soto - 

It certainly is a far too frequent occurrence in Chicago. An innocent life being taken at the hands of punks and cowards. Unfortunately this is what transpired with young and innocent High School honors student Hadiya Pendleton. Defense lawyers highlighted a lack of physical evidence as the trial started Tuesday for two men charged in the shooting death of a 15-year-old Chicago student just days after she performed with her high school band at then-President Barack Obama's inaugural festivities. Separate juries are hearing the cases against Micheail Ward and Kenneth Williams in the January 2013 death of Hadiya Pendleton. Lawyers gave opening statements and began questioning witnesses Tuesday.
