AURORA, Colo. (KUSA) - The man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 others in the movie theater shooting appeared before an Arapahoe County Judge Monday for the first time.
James Holmes is being held at the Arapahoe County Jail.
The prosecution asked the judge for another week to formally bring charges against Holmes. But the judge did order Holmes be held without bond and a no contact order be issued between him and the victims and their families.
Holmes is being represented by two public defenders. Supposedly they are the top two public defenders in the state.
Holmes appeared in court with red/orange hair, despite reports from police last week saying Holmes didn't have red hair.
He also appeared to barely keep his eyes open while the judge was speaking.
After the advisement, prosecutors technically have 72 hours to decide on and file official charges against him.
Eighteenth Judicial District Attorney Carol Chambers said Monday that her office is considering pursuing the death penalty against James Holmes. She says a decision will be made in consultation with victims' families.
