SARATOGA, Calif. (AP) - The lawyer for the family of a 15-year-old Northern California girl who killed herself after saying three boys sexually assaulted her says the family has reached a tentative settlement with two defendants in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Robert Allard told the San Jose Mercury News the family of Audrie Pott has reached the deal with Michael and Sheila Penuen, the owners of the home where Pott was allegedly assaulted. Pott hanged herself after photos of the alleged abuse circulated online.

The newspaper report did not include any details of the settlement.

A woman who picked up the phone on Saturday at a listing for the Penuen's said she had no comment.

Three boys have been charged criminally in the case. They, their parents and a 15-year-old girl have also been named in the wrongful death lawsuit.
