Gov’t Shutdown Stops Payments of Military Death Benefits — Mary Beth McDade Reports

A lapse in benefits normally paid to the families of U.S. service members killed in combat is adding to the already existing anger over the partial federal government shutdown.

Mary Beth McDade reports from the newsroom for the KTLA News at 10 on Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013.
