Prosecutors to decide April 1 if they will seek death penalty against James Holmes
A hearing is scheduled for April 1 for prosecutors to decide if they will seek the death penalty against James Holmes, the alleged shooter in the Colorado Movie Theater massacre.
Last week a judge entered a plea of not guilty on Holmes’ behalf after his defense attorneys said they were not ready to enter a plea. His attorneys are still reportedly considering whether to pursue an insanity defense.
Holmes is charged with 166 counts of murder and attempted murder. He is accused of opening fire during the midnight premier of The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 people and wounding 58 others.
