Attorney General Van Hollen wants murdered Wauwatosa officer added to national memorialSubmitted: 03/20/2013

MADISON - Wisconsin's top prosecutor wants a murdered police officer to be added to a national memorial. But the non-profit group that runs it might not allow it.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says it shouldn't matter that Wauwatosa Officer Jennifer Sebena was killed in a suspected domestic-abuse attack.

Sebena was shot and killed on Christmas Eve. Her husband is 30-year-old Iraq War veteran Benjamin Sebena.

He says she was on duty at the time, and should be on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

He wrote a letter today 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.
