Colorado shooting suspect to face trial

Posted:

CENTENNIAL, CO (WKOW) -- A trial is ahead for the accused Colorado movie theater shooter.

Judge William Sylvester said Thursday that prosecutors have established probable cause on more than 160 felony counts against James Holmes.

Holmes is due to be arraigned Friday, but his defense attorneys filed papers Thursday saying he's not ready to enter a plea. They are likely to ask for the arraignment to be delayed.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and hurting 70 others when he opened fire in a movie theater in Aurora in July of 2012.
