Motion Seeks to Add Charges in Theater Shooting
Prosecutors are seeking to file 10 more counts against the man accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others at a suburban Denver movie theater.
James Holmes already is charged with 142 counts including murder and attempted murder stemming from the shootings at an Aurora theater July 20.
A judge has issued a gag order limiting what information lawyers can publicly disclose in the case. However a court register of case actions indicated Wednesday that prosecutors are seeking to add 10 counts against Holmes and amend 17 others. It didn't disclose details.
The next hearing in the case is set for Thursday, when prosecutors will set out arguments for why they should be able to see the contents of a notebook Holmes sent to a university psychiatrist.
