Enough Evidence For Holmes To Stand Trial, Judge Rules

Filed by KOSU News in US News.

A judge ruled Thursday that there’s enough evidence for James Holmes to stand trial on charges that he killed 12 people and injured dozens of others at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., last summer.

Here’s more from the Denver Post:

“Holmes will be formally arraigned on the 166 counts of murder, attempted murder and other crimes he faces at a hearing at 9 a.m. Friday. He will have to enter a plea at that time, although his attorneys filed a motion Thursday seeking a delay.”

The Associated Press is reporting that Holmes’ defense attorneys filed papers Thursday, saying the accused gunman isn’t ready to enter a plea.

The Denver Post adds that the judge’s decision Thursday to move ahead with the trial is not unexpected. Here’s more:

“It comes after a three-day preliminary hearing in which prosecutors tied Holmes to weapons found at the theater after the shooting, displayed pictures of Holmes posing with guns and body armor and detailed the intricacy of explosives found in his apartment.”

Mark blogged earlier this week that some of the 911 calls made from inside the theater during the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises were played during the preliminary hearing for Homes. [Copyright 2013 National Public Radio]
