CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado movie theater shooting suspect has shown little emotion as he makes his first court appearance with reddish orange hair.
James Holmes first appeared wide-eyed Monday and unshaven as he sat staring down. But at more than one point, he closed his eyes as a judge spoke and appeared to nod off.
He appeared after being accused of the shooting rampage at a Colorado movie theater that killed 12 people and injured 58 others early Friday morning. 11 victims remain in critical condition on Monday.
The judge says he will be formally charged next Monday.
Authorities say the 24-year-old former graduate student is refusing to cooperate and it could take months to learn what prompted the horrific attack on moviegoers at a midnight screening of the latest Batman film. Investigators say they found a Batman mask inside Holmes' booby-trapped apartment after the attack. They also spent more than two days dealing with a booby trap consisting of 30 homemade grenades rigged to a trip wire in the apartment.
Police say Holmes starting buying guns two months ago and recently purchased 6000 rounds of ammunition over the internet. Holmes nearly escaped detection at the crime scene because he was dressed in tactical gear, like a member of the SWAT team. The thing that gave him away, according to officers, was his gas mask-which was of a different variety than what police wear.
Holmes has been held in solitary confinement since Friday. Prosecutors say they may consider the death penalty but will make that decision after consulting with victim's families.
