Men charged in Pendleton murder to appear in bond court
Two men accused of killing 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton will appear in bond court Tuesday.
Chicago police charged 18-year-old Micheail Ward and 20-year-old Kenneth Williams with first-degree murder Monday night.
Police say they’re gang members who were out for revenge, when they opened fire on Pendleton and her friends at a South Side park two weeks ago.
Ward confessed to police.
He said they mistook some of Pendleton’s friends as rivals who shot Williams in July.
Pendleton’s father spoke out for the first time after the charges were announced.
Pendleton’s parents are in Washington to attend Tuesday night’s State of the Union address as President Obama’s guests.
