James Holmes' Defense Team Not Ready to Enter Plea

A judge has ordered the suspected gunman in last year's Colorado theater shooting to stand trial, but his attorneys say they're not ready to enter a plea at a hearing Friday morning.

 After a week in which prosecutors made a graphic case to bring 25-year-old James Holmes to trial for the shooting that left 12 dead and 70 wounded, the judge on Thursday ruled that the case could go forward. Holmes faces multiple counts of first-degree murder and attempted murder and could face the death penalty.
