James Holmes, the man who mercilessly killed 12 people during a Dark Knight Rises screening in Aurora, CO last July WILL stand trial for his "alleged" crimes, or so said Colorado District Judge William Sylvester Thursday night.
Holmes was expected to make a plea during today's scheduled arraignment, but the hearing has been postponed until March 12.
Apparently, Holmes' lawyers claim their client is mentally ill and needs more time to enter a plea.
Copious amounts of evidence link Holmes to the shootings, and as we've previously reported, Holmes has already been charged with 24 counts of murder and 116 counts of attempted murder in an untelevised hearing.
IF James is convicted, he could face the death penalty. If he is found not guilty because of his questionable mental state, he could be sent to an institution for the criminally insane.
