Remembering Mia Henderson
Trial for Galareka Harrison held in Tucson court Sept. 11

TUBA CITY, Ariz. - It's been a year since "Princess" Mia Janelle Henderson was killed in her University of Arizona (UA) dorm room, the victim of an early morning knife attack. The accused, Galareka Harrison of Many Farms, her roommate at the time, stood trial last week in Tucson, after a half-day delay in selecting a final jury. Henderson, who was 18 at the time of her death, is remembered as a brilliant young academic star whose humor and physical beauty was matched by her kindness and generosity of spirit by her former softball teammates and certainly by Tuba City and Moencopi.
