Accused Colorado Shooter James Holmes Charged With 24 Counts of First-Degree Murder
Alicia Acuna reports that James Holmes, the 24-year-old accused of murdering 12 people and injuring 58 at a Colorado movie theater, has been charged with 24 counts of first-degree murder, two counts for each of the 12 victims. He was also charged with 116 counts of attempted murder in the first degree.
Cameras were not allowed in the courtroom, so Acuna got a firsthand account of the court proceedings from Fox News Producer Jennifer Girdon, who was in the courtroom. Girdon described Holmes’ appearance saying that he still had the orange and red hair we saw during last week’s court appearance. She reports that the suspect hadn’t shaven so he appeared rather scruffy. While Girdon said that it was difficult to tell his demeanor because she didn’t have a great view of him, she said, “He was looking around. He looked like he knew what was going on. Looking at the judge when the judge talked, looking at the gallery a little bit.”

Girdon discussed that there were seats reserved for victims and family members in the courtroom, most of whom remained very solemn throughout the hearing.
Girdon reported that Holmes didn’t speak at all during the proceeding.
