The Dark Knight Rises shooter, James Holmes, is looking at 12 counts of first degree murder after his first round in court Monday morning.
Holmes was held in solitary confinement since Friday after he was detained for the massacre that took place in Aurora, CO. 12 were left dead and 58 injured after Holmes went into a midnight screening of the summer Blockbuster, and opened fire.
This morning, the murderer appeared bizarre as he shuffled into court. His reddish-orange hair, red jumpsuit, and shackles made him look as weird as his behavior. As the judge spoke, Holmes seemed to doze off at times. Other times his eyes opened and closed a bit too much. Photos from the courtroom reveal Holmes is definitely a confused individual.
The Prosecutors have mentioned that the death penalty is definitely being considered for Holmes. This doesn’t seem unlikely since he did shoot and kill 12 people, one only six years old, who were simply trying to enjoy a movie. But with Holmes’ behavior and other things that have come to light…like his booby trapped home and the Batman mask found in his apartment, his defense might plead insanity.
Official charges will be dished out next Monday, while Prosecutors are saying that this might not go to trial for a year.
