James Holmes Mug Shot

The former medical school student, who first appeared in court last week, was back there again today, still donning orange hair. He was told he's facing 116 counts of attempted murder - two for each of the 58 attendees who were shot.

He also spoke for the first time during the hearing, answering the judge's question about his attorney's request for more time before a preliminary hearing with a simple "yes."

Overall, Holmes will face 142 charges, including one count of possessing an explosive device and one count of unlawful use of a deadly weapon.

It's unknown at this time if prosecutors will seek the death penalty and Holmes is expected back in court on August 9.

Holmes your supposed to shoot yourself afterwards you faggot coward


@timdog Woof! Woof! (rapid panting with tongue hanging out & big brown eyes looking up admiringly) Yeah, you tell 'em sport! This dude deserves no mercy!


I don't think this is the right guy you guys. I mean seriously I know that he could have gotten a face lift or whatever but think of it this way. This guy was a med student. Med students live in debt for a quarter of their lives during and after their college years. Why would he just drop out of college to get a face lift? I mean come on. Not only that but isn't it a law that you have to regularly submit to psych evaluations while you're in medical college?


all those incident people killed this one would be a dificult task for me what i think but my opion think life in prison with out parole and not get out with out parole my thoughts on it.i have a 21 year old and the only one i feel sory for his his mom and dad i dont feel sorry for that guy that did all that shotting and killed incident people.at all.


I think he should rot in a jail cell for the rest of his life, why should he die and no let him Live out his life being heated rapped and stabbed in the jail at least that way he get a little of what he deserves.


Enough! Let's turn on the electricity. This guy knew exactly what he was going to do. I have no sympathy for him...I do however have sympathy for his parents.


Don't waste out tax dollars! Take him out like he took out all those helpless people.


I think they should torture this fuck to the extreme..They should use vise grips on his balls and then feed him his own balls. If this faggott fuvk ever spend oine day in my fucking court room i promise you he would suffer so bad hed beg for death at which point id bury him alive.


Put him down, like you would a pit bull with rabies.


@Terry then why was HIS apartment rigged with explosives and why did HE send a blueprint of his crime spree to HIS psychiatrist, and why was HE caught with the guns and weapons used to shoot all of the victims, and why was HE identified as the person looking at those particular weapons by the gun store owner? Unless his aliby is Jesus or mother Teresa, he's not going no mutha-fkn-where.
