Colo. shooting suspect due back in court

By  | 

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — A second day of hearings is scheduled to get under way Tuesday for the man accused of a bloody rampage in a Colorado movie theater that left 12 people dead.

On Monday, Aurora police officers gave detailed accounts of the grim scene. They said they saw people running out of the theater trying to get away. Others walked, while some of the wounded tried to crawl out during the attack during a Batman movie in July.

Legal analysts say the hearing could set the stage for a negotiated plea agreement by giving each side a better understanding of the other's case. Relatives and victims are hoping for an explanation for the rampage.
