Killa Marti is an immigration attorney in Atlanta. Her mother was a lawyer, as well, practicing for more than three decades in their native country of Honduras, which was cited last year by the U.N. as one of the world’s most dangerous nations.
Several years ago, Marti's mother was gunned down while being driven in her car. In the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, Marti talks with her husband, Ivan Marti, about the incident and her mother’s legacy as a lawyer.
