Colorado victim suffers miscarriage

Denver - A woman who was critically wounded in the Colorado theatre shooting that left dead her 6-year-old daughter has suffered a miscarriage.

The family of Ashley Moser said in a statement on Saturday that she is recovering from surgery but that the trauma caused the miscarriage.

Jacki Kelley of the Jefferson County sheriff's office declined to release details and says the family has declined to speak to the media.

Moser's daughter, Veronica Moser-Sullivan, was the youngest person killed in the attack at a midnight showing of the new Batman movie in Aurora, Colorado, more than a week ago.

Moser suffered gunshot wounds to her neck and abdomen. A family member has said they hadn't told her about Veronica's death.

The family says funeral plans for the girl remain pending.
