CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — The man charged with killing 12 people and injuring 58 others in a Colorado movie theater was unemotional as he heard the charges against him.

At times, it appeared James Holmes was trying to focus his eyes.

When the judge asked if he approved of a delay in the bail hearing to November, he reacted as if his thoughts were disturbed. Holmes leaned to his lawyer, appeared to mouth "OK," then responded "yeah" to the judge.

Before the hearing, several people in the courtroom clasped their hands and bowed their heads as if in prayer. One unidentified man glared at Holmes throughout the hearing.

Among the victims attending the hearing was Rita Paulina, who arrived in a wheelchair. Another woman with a bandaged arm was among several wearing Batman T-shirts.
