James Holmes Hospitalized for Head-Slamming in Jail Cell

AURORA, CO - Citing unspecified recent events that caused accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes to be hospitalized, his lawyers asked for a scheduled court appearance to be delayed.

Sources familiar with the hearing say Holmes would not appear Thursday because in the past several days he purposely hit his head on the wall and floor of his cell. He did not suffer obvious physical injuries.

The concern is not about his physical health, the sources said, but about his demeanor. The sources also said it was not a suicide attempt.
