Aurora Shooting Suspect Charged
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) James Holmes appeared just as dazed as he did in his first court hearing after the deadly Colorado movie theater massacre.
Holmes, 24, sat silently in a packed Denver-area courtroom on Monday, as a judge told him about the charges filed against him, including murder and attempted murder, in one of the deadliest mass shootings in recent U.S. history.
Holmes faces two first-degree murder charges for each of the 12 people killed and two attempted first-degree murder charges for every one of the 58 injured in the July 20 shooting.In all, prosecutors charged Holmes with 142 counts in the shooting rampage at a midnight showing of the new Batman movie,
After the charges were read, prosecutors and defense attorneys sparred over whether a notebook that news reports said Holmes sent to his psychiatrist and had descriptions of the attack was privileged information.
