A judge entered a plea of not guilty Tuesday on behalf of Aurora theater shooting suspect James Eagan Holmes after rejecting a request from his attorneys for more time to formulate a plea.
If defense attorneys want to claim use an insanity defense for Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes, they must first agree to drug him for a psychiatric examination, a judge ruled.
A judge on Friday delayed the arraignment of the man charged with the Colorado theater shooting until March despite objections from prosecutors and most of the victims and their families.
A judge ruled late Thursday that there is enough evidence for James Holmes to face trial on charges that he killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a Colorado movie theater last summer.
Attorneys for the suspect in the Colorado movie theater shootings say that their client is mentally ill and that they need more time to assess the nature of his illness.
Colorado prosecutors on Monday charged 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.
Prosecutors filed multiple first-degree murder and attempted-murder charges Monday against the suspect in the Aurora theater shooting that left 12 dead and 58 wounded.
"The reality [is] that a final resolution of this case is now likely years away," said Judge Sylvester in his order.
Chief District Court Judge William Sylvester said he would be unable to preside over the case as a result of time constraints stemming from his duties as chief judge, and reassigned the case to District Court Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr.
