AURORA, Colorado – The trial of James Holmes, accused in the mass shooting at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater, has been delayed again.
The trial was scheduled to begin in October, but a psychiatrist conducting a second sanity examination on Holmes asked for more time to complete the examination, according to a judge’s order from Arapahoe County District Court made public Wednesday.
The examination was originally set to be completed by August 15, but Judge Carlos Samour granted an extension until October 15.
A new trial date is set to be scheduled at a July 22 hearing.
He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the 166 charges he faces in connection with the rampage.
