Mom of girl killed in Colorado movie theater shooting will be paralyzed

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - A family member says the woman who lost her 6-year-old daughter in the Aurora theater shooting and suffered a miscarriage is expected to be paralyzed as a result of her injuries.

Mary Ellen Hansen says doctors still hope her niece, Ashley Moser, will have use of her arms.

Hansen also says the funeral of 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan has been delayed until her mother is able to attend, and there's no estimate on when that will be.

Hansen spoke at the courthouse where the shooting suspect, James Holmes, was charged with 142 criminal counts.

After the hearing, she said she thought Holmes appeared coherent and alert and that he had a "persona of evilness."
