Defense wants more time in Colorado shooting case
CENTENNIAL, Colo. – A hearing to decide if the man accused of opening fire on a Colorado movie theater should stand trial might not be held until January.
One of James Holmes' lawyers, Tamara Brady, told a judge Thursday that the defense must review nearly 19,000 pages of evidence received so far and investigate what they find to prepare for the preliminary hearing. Prosecutors are still processing thousands of pages of medical records on the victims.
Prosecutors say they could be ready for a hearing next month. But Deputy District Attorney Rich Orman said he wants to consult with victims and their families before agreeing to delay the preliminary hearing, where the evidence against Holmes will be presented.
