(Memphis) News Channel 3 has learned a probate judge has appointed a Guardian Ad Litem for the four daughters of fallen officer Martoiya Lang.

Attorney Flordia Henderson will have responsibility of representing the children’s interests and report back to the court.

Officer Lang’s mother, who filed to be the girl’s legal guardian, will not have her case heard until the end of February. In the meantime, Lang’s estranged husband has custody.
