The first court appearance for 'suspected' Dark Knight shooter James Holmes took place this morning in a Colorado court, presided over by honorable Judge William B. Sylvester.
As was rumored, James' hair IS dyed orange-red, in similar fashion to the acid-green locks of the Joker character from Batman fame.
After reading James his rights, the judge told the unresponsive Holmes he will likely be charged with first degree murder for killing 12 people, which could result in the death penalty.
James is being held without possibility of bail and has been told he cannot contact the victims of the fatal, movie theater shooting that took place early Friday morning.
James will OFFICIALLY be charged at a court hearing held Monday, July 30 at 9:30am.
The former PhD student was dressed in a maroon jumpsuit, and sat next to a member of his defense team. Arapahoe County public defender James O'Connor has been assigned to the case.
Throughout the appearance, James' eyelids fluttered, his eyes kept bulging, and he seemed extremely incoherent.
From just looking at James during the hearing, it's obvious he is a disturbed individual.
