Yale Suspect's Attorney Complains About News Leaks

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- An attorney for the Connecticut man accused of killing a Yale University graduate student says he'll file a complaint over information about the case leaked by anonymous law enforcement officials to the news media.

Public defender Joseph Lopez represents Raymond Clark III, who's charged with murder in the death of Annie Le.

Le vanished from a research building Sept. 8; her body was found in a wall recess five days later.

Lopez said Saturday his office would file a complaint with the state attorney's office because the leaks of case details raise "serious concerns" and are a "disturbing situation."

He tells New York's Newsday newspaper the leaks "can jeopardize the integrity of the investigation and of the judicial proceedings, particularly when some of the leaked information may not be true."
