(Newsroom America) -- Former neuroscience student James Eagan Holmes will face 24 counts of murder and 116 counts of attempted murder at an Aurora movie theater.
Holmes, 24, is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 others at the movie theater during a midnight screening.
Holmes was charged with two counts of first-degree murder for each victim who died in the rampage. Court documents showed one charge was for "murder with deliberation" and another for "evidencing an attitude of universal malice manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life."
Cameras were not allowed in court, but reports said Holmes again appeared dazed during his court appearance.
Reports said the only possible defense for Holmes would be to plead insanity.
