AG wants fallen Wis. officer's name on DC memorial

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

A Wisconsin official is asking a nonprofit group in Washington, D.C., to reconsider its decision not to add the name of a fallen Wauwatosa police officer to its memorial.

 

 Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says it shouldn't matter that Officer Jennifer Sebena was killed in a suspected domestic-abuse attack. He says she was on duty at the time, and merits inclusion on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

   He wrote a letter Wednesday asking the group not to deny her inclusion just because her husband was the suspected shooter.

   A message left with the memorial group was not immediately returned.

   Sebena was shot and killed on Christmas Eve. Her husband, 30-year-old Iraq War veteran Benjamin Sebena, has pleaded insanity to a charge of first-degree intentional homicide.
