World gets first look at Colo shooting suspect

Posted: Updated:

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado movie theater shooting suspect showed little emotion as he made his first court appearance handcuffed with reddish orange hair.

James Holmes was wide-eyed, frowning and unshaven as he sat staring down. At one point he closed his eyes as a judge spoke.

He appeared after being accused of the shooting rampage at a Colorado movie theater that killed 12 people and injured 58 others.

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.

District attorney Carol Chambers was set to speak after the hearing.

Investigators say they found a Batman mask inside Holmes' booby-trapped apartment after the attack.

A Colorado prosecutor says it will likely be at least a year before James Holmes would stand trial.
