Judge: Colorado shooting suspect to face trial

Posted:
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) -

A Colorado judge says there's enough evidence for James Holmes to face trial on charges that allege he killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a movie theater last summer.

Judge William Sylvester said Thursday that prosecutors have established probable cause on more than 160 felony counts.

Holmes is due to be arraigned Friday, but his defense attorneys filed papers Thursday saying he's not ready to enter a plea. They are likely to ask for the arraignment to be delayed.
