Prosecutors in James Holmes' case ask for more time to consider deal

DENVER - News 5 has just learned from our partners in Denver, KUSA, that the prosecutors in the Aurora theater shooting suspect's case have filed documents saying James Holmes' public defender broke the pre-trial publicity order.

Prosecutors claim the defense presented a plea on their terms and are now asking for more time to consider the plea deal. James Holmes' defense is denying those allegations. Earlier this week, his attorneys offered for their client to plead guilty in exchange for avoiding the death penalty.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 and injuring 58 others in the Aurora theater shootings last summer.

The prosecution is set to decide if they'll seek the death penalty in court on Monday.

We'll continue to keep you posted on this developing story as it unfolds.
