    DENVER, CO (CNN) -- A judge in Colorado will decide tomorrow if James Holmes will stand trial for the July shooting massacre at a movie theater. On the final day of the preliminary hearing yesterday, the prosecution presented photos that included Holmes posing with weapons.

    Chilling images shown on the TV monitor in court as prosecutors continued to lay out evidence to prove accused theater shooter James Holmes and intent and was deliberate with his actions on July 20.

    Prosecutors show photos found on James Holmes' iPhone. A sketch of one photo shows Holmes posing with a 40-caliber handgun.

    Aurora Police Sergeant Matthew Fyles testified Holmes was wearing black contacts, and had, quote, a large toothy smile. Another photo shows Holmes with a black cap on, orange curls sticking out the back and Holmes sticking his tongue out.

    Both photos were times stamped six hours before the shooting. Prosecutor Karen Pearson also showed four other photos from the iPhone.

    Images of what's believed to be inside and outside of the Century 16 Theater. The inside photos time stamped June 29 and the outside July 5 and July 11. Prosecutor Karen Pearson told the judge there is an abundance of evidence that shows pre-mediation and planning. His attorney Dan Recht says, "Most every lay person believes that the more planning involved, the less likely it is that someone's insane, that isn't necessarily true."

    Attorney Dan Recht tells 7News it is not surprising the defense never called a witness at the preliminary hearing, since it's on the prosecution to prove it has enough evidence.

    The judge won't decide until Friday morning if there's enough evidence for Holmes to stand trial on all 166 counts.

    Though assuming there is, the judge has also tentatively scheduled Friday as a day Holmes could enter a plea.

    Twelve people were killed and 58 injured when a gunman shot up a movie theater during the midnight showing of the latest Batman film in Aurora, Colorado.
