CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado movie theater shooting suspect has shown little emotion as he makes his first court appearance 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.
Holmes left the hearing in handcuffs. 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 on moviegoers at a midnight screening of the latest Batman film.
Investigators say they found a Batman mask inside Holmes' booby-trapped apartment after the attack.
Holmes has been held in solitary confinement since Friday.
Video of the hearing was streamed live on the Internet and television but there were problems with the audio feed.
