Stores, Inc., 234 Conn. 597, 613, 662 A.2d 753 (1995), the administrator of an estate brought an action against a parking garage owner for the death of the decedent resulting from her murder by a third party in the garage. Id., 599. Affirming the judgment in favor of the plaintiff, the Supreme Court held that the trial court correctly had denied the defendant's motion for a directed verdict and properly submitted the issue of causation to the jury for its factual determination.
