A lawyer for relatives of a slain Yale University graduate student says they're considering suing the Connecticut school over its hiring of the suspect in her killing and the way it looked into her disappearance.

Attorney Brian King said Wednesday that Annie Le's (LAY's) family questions whether Yale officials properly investigated suspect Raymond Clark III's background before hiring him as a technician at a lab building where Le worked.

A spokesman says an aunt and uncle who raised Le in Placerville, Calif., aren't part of the lawsuit.

The 24-year-old Le's body was found behind a lab wall last September.

Clark has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in Le's death.

A Yale spokesman says the New Haven school hasn't been notified of any anticipated lawsuits.
