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

Jacki Kelley of the Jefferson County sheriff's office said Saturday that Ashley Moser is recovering from surgery but that the trauma caused the miscarriage.

Kelley declined to release details of Moser's pregnancy. Moser's 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, and a family member has said her family had not told her about Veronica's death. The family says funeral plans for the girl remain pending.
