Massacre Suspect James Holmes Faces Charges

UPDATE: Colorado prosecutors on Monday charged James Holmes, a former neuroscience graduate student with 24 counts of murder and 116 counts of attempted murder in the shooting rampage at the midnight showing of the new Batman movie.

James Holmes will appear in court for the second time Monday to hear the charges against him. Holmes is accused accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 in a shooting spree at a Colorado movie theater. β€œThere’s probably charges that can be brought [on behalf] of anybody who was present. The state will need to decide how they approach all of those charges,” the former head of the Colorado public defender’s office explained. The judge will also hear arguments regarding a package Holmes mailed to his psychiatrist that his lawyers argue was illegally apprehended and leaked to the public by the government.
