Covington KY mayor won't donate for funeral

Covington KY mayor Joe Meyer has refused several requests to make a contribution to help bury a young mother killed on one of his streets.

Zuri Collins was shot and killed while sitting in a car with her father at 13th and Wheeler in the Kentucky city a couple weekends ago.

A mother of three, her family has been pleading with Covington residents to help with funeral expenses.

Even after being prodded by the local newspaper, Covington News, to make a donation Mayor Meyer has yet to respond.

Meyer also got himself in trouble by not attending two memorial marches after Ms. Collins' death. After severe criticism, the mayor did show for a third march.
