COLORADO - A former prosecutor said the man accused of the Colorado theater shooting will not face an additional homicide charge after one of the victims, who was critically injured, suffered a miscarriage.
Defense attorney Karen Steinhauser, a former prosecutor and current adjunct professor at the University of Denver, says homicide charges in Colorado only apply to those "who had been born and alive."
The family of Ashley Moser, who was critically wounded in the July 20th shooting in Aurora, said in a statement Saturday she is recovering from surgery, but the trauma cased her to miscarry.
Moser suffered gunshot wounds to the neck and abdomen. Her family says she could be paralyzed.
Her daughter, 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan, died in the attack.
The suspected gunman, 24-year-old James Holmes, is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
