Family of slain law grad want farm searched

MACON, Ga. (AP) - Parents of a slain Mercer University law school graduate want investigators to search farmland in central Georgia in hopes of finding her remains.

The parents of 27-year-old Lauren Giddings are asking a federal judge to allow them to search farmland that belonged to a relative of murder suspect Stephen McDaniel.

The Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/17i15K7) that the federal wrongful death lawsuit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Macon.

McDaniel is charged with the June 2011 slaying and dismemberment of Giddings, who was from Laurel, Md. Her torso was found in a trash bin near her apartment and police have said the rest of her remains have not been found.

McDaniel has pleaded not guilty. His attorney Floyd Buford declined to comment until he's reviewed the lawsuit.
