CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -

The parents of a Virginia Tech student who was killed after attending a concert in Charlottesville plan to discuss their civil litigation against a company that provided security at the show.

Dan and Gil Harrington are due in Charlottesville on Tuesday to discuss the civil action, which was filed in 2011 against the security company at John Paul Jones Arena on the night of Oct. 17, 2009. The Harrington's 20-year-old daughter, Morgan, disappeared after she left a Metallica concert at the arena that night.

Harrington's remains were found in January 2010 in a farm field in Albemarle County. Her killer has not been found.

The initial lawsuit sought $3.5 million against the security company.
