DENVER (AP) - The attorney who represented Casey Anthony, who was found not guilty in the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee last year, has been retained by the mother of one of the victims of last month's theater shooting in Aurora.
Publicist Michael Wright said Monday Jose Baez is investigating a possible civil lawsuit over responsibility for the shootings, including security measures at the theater where the shootings occurred. Baez is representing Shirley Wygal, mother of Rebecca Wingo, who died in the shootings.
A spokesman for the theater did not return a call seeking comment.
James Holmes is accused of going on a shooting rampage on July 20 at the midnight showing of the new Batman movie in suburban Denver that left 12 dead and 58 people injured.
