Lauren Giddings funeral set for Saturday in Laurel
ATLANTA (AP) — A funeral is planned in Maryland for 27-year-old Lauren Giddings, a recent Mercer University law school graduate whose body was found outside her apartment building in Macon.
The funeral is planned for Saturday evening at St. Mary of the Mills Catholic Church in Giddings' hometown of Laurel, Md.
Former Mercer classmate Stephen Mark McDaniel has been charged with murder in connection with the death.
An attorney for McDaniel, who was Giddings' next-door neighbor, has said that McDaniel is innocent and will fight the charges.
Giddings was last seen after a night out with friends June 25. Five days later, police discovered her remains wrapped in plastic in a garbage bin beside her apartment building.
