The Common Council’s Legislation Committee is expected to discuss a state law that would stiffen the penalties for disposing of human remains in an attempt to conceal a death.

Leslie Brill, the mother of Amanda L. Wienckowski, whose frozen body was found in a trash bin in 2009, has been invited to speak at the meeting, at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers.

A measure from Council Member Darius G. Pridgen would put the Council on record in support of “Amanda Lynn’s Law,” sponsored by state Sen. Mark J. Grisanti.

“The purpose of the resolution is to continue to bring attention to a gruesome crime,” Pridgen said.
