Judge bars cameras from Colorado shooting suspect’s court hearing
James Holmes Mug Shot
DENVER (AP) — A judge is barring news cameras from the next court hearing for the man accused of opening fire at a movie theater showing “The Dark Knight Rises.”
Reporters can still attend the hearing for James Holmes on Monday, when prosecutors are expected to file formal charges against him after an attack Friday that killed 12 people and injured 58 others in Aurora.
One video camera and one still camera were allowed for Holmes’ initial court appearance this past Monday, capturing images of a dazed-looking suspect with dyed red hair. KUSA-TV in Denver, The Denver Post and Colorado Public Radio also wanted audio, video and photography coverage of the next hearing.
A judge denied the request Tuesday after weighing issues including whether such coverage would interfere with having a fair trial.
