(CNN) -- The two men suspected of shooting to death a Chicago teenage girl are facing murder charges and will not get bond.
Kenneth Williams, 20, and Michael Ward, 18, went before a judge Tuesday in their first courtroom appearance concerning the killing of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old who performed at a brunch before the January inauguration of President Obama.
Police earlier said that Ward, who allegedly shot Pendleton, was on probation for unlawful use of a firearm.
Hadiya's story has become a national example of the gun control issue in this country, and First Lady Michelle Obama invited parents Cleopatra and Nathaniel to the State of the Union Address last night, where President Obama strongly urged greater action.
This morning on "Starting Point," Cleopatra and Nathaniel talk in their first sit-down interview with Soledad O'Brien and John Berman to talk about the President's gun control goals, and the legacy of their daughter.
