CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - The suspect in the Colorado theater shootings has returned to court for another hearing, but the judge mostly dealt with scheduling matters.
The hearing on Thursday was originally scheduled to consider a request by the defense to delay James Holmes' preliminary hearing, where the judge would decide whether Holmes should stand trial.
However, defense lawyers asked for more time to prepare to argue for a delay, and the judge granted it.
The judge said he planned to release decisions on some of the motions in the case. Court officials say the decisions were not expected to be made public until Friday.
Holmes is charged with first-degree murder and other crimes in the July 20 shootings in the Denver suburb of Aurora that killed 12 people and wounded at least 58.
