Families propose rules for Aurora shooting victims fund

DENVER (AP) - Family members of some of the people killed in the Colorado theater shootings are proposing guidelines to ensure the money collected by a fundraising campaign goes to the victims.

The plan was released Tuesday, a day before a meeting between the families and campaign overseers.

Some families criticized the campaign last week. They said it collected more than $5 million using the victims' names and images but gave no more than $5,000 each to families facing medical bills and other expenses.

The Denver Post reports their proposals include how the money would be paid to victims and the makeup of committees involved.

Twelve people died and 58 were wounded in the July 20 shootings. James Eagan Holmes is charged with murder and attempted murder. He hasn't entered a plea.
