24-year old James Holmes was walked into Arapahoe County District Court shackled at the hands and feet for a short preliminary hearing.  His hair painted red, his head bobbing.  This was the first public appearance for Holmes since carrying out one of the deadliest shooting sprees in U.S. history.

Mass Murder James Holmes To Appear In Court Monday

About two dozen victims and victim supporters attended the hearing, but they were never once acknowledged by a disheveled Holmes, who’s public appointed attorney Tamara Brady sat close by.

Judge William B. Sylvester advised Holmes of his Miranda rights, and found probable cause to continue to hold him without bond on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Holmes’ next court appearance is set for July 30 when he is expected to be formerly charged for his crimes, but a decision about whether the state will seek the death penalty could be weeks or months away.
