CHICAGO (WKOW) -- Authorities in Chicago say they've filed murder charges against two men accused of killing a 15-year-old girl who performed in President Obama's inauguration.
A Chicago police spokeswoman announced the charges against 18-year-old Michael Ward and 20-year-old Kenneth Williams in connection with the death of Hadiya Pendleton.
Pendleton was killed January 29 while walking with friends in a park.
