The partner of Dana Canedy, the Pultizer Prize-winning reporter and now assistant editor on the national desk of The New York Times, has been killed on duty in Iraq.
The man, Charles King — a master sergeant in the U.S. Army — had been home a month ago to see their son, Jordan, who was born in March.
Canedy has been an editor at the Times since 2003.
“Dana’s family and friends are with her, helping with the shock and grief of the sudden loss,” a memo from the paper’s top editors to staff explained late Monday.
Canedy previously served as the Times? Miami bureau chief. She joined the paper in September 1996. Before that, she worked at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland and The Wall Street Journal, among other publications.
In 2000, her article ?Between the Lines, a Measure of Hurt,? appeared in the Times? Pulitzer award-winning series, ?How Race Is Lived in America.? She also was part of the project?s editing team.
