Due to a family illness, Dave and Jayann Sepich, parents of slain New Mexico State University student Katie Sepich, have canceled their scheduled appearance at the 2nd Annual Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Awards Banquet.

Judge Conrad Perea has accepted an invitation to speak in their absence. The banquet will be hosted at the Las Cruces Convention Center at 6 p.m., Friday, Jan. 18.

The Sepiches have been active supporters of Katie’s Law, a federal measure to require DNA testing for all felony arrests nationwide. The act was signed into law by President Obama last week, but has been on the books in New Mexico since 2007.

Katie Sepich was found murdered east of Las Cruces in 2003. The Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department investigated the killing, and arrested Gabriel Avila after a positive DNA match.
