SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The parents of a San Francisco woman shot to death by a man being sought for deportation plan to file legal claims against San Francisco and federal officials in connection with her killing.

Kathryn Steinle’s parents, Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan, will reveal details Tuesday of their claim against San Francisco’s Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, the Bureau of Land Management and Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold them accountable for the woman’s death.

Kathryn Steinle was shot to death on Pier 14 on July 1 as she walked with her father.

Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a 45-year-old Mexican immigrant who was facing possible deportation, has pleaded not guilty to her murder.

Her slaying touched off a national conversation about immigration policy and so-called “sanctuary cities.”
