"The Dark Knight Rises" Shooter to Face the Death Penalty

Posted: Updated:

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - The judge in the case of Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes has delayed the trial until next February, and acknowledged even that date might be pushed back now that prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty.

The trial had been proposed for August.

Prosecutors want the case wrapped up by spring of next year, but defense attorneys say there's no way that can happen.

Defense attorney Tamara Brady says the lawyers will do whatever it takes to defend Holmes' life and don't want the trial rushed.

Investigators say Holmes methodically stockpiled weapons and ammunition for his assault on a packed midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises."
