A judge entered a plea of not guilty Tuesday for James Holmes, the man accused of massacring 12 people at a Batman movie last summer, and scheduled a one-month trial beginning in August.
Judge William Sylvester of Colorado circuit court entered the plea after lawyers for Holmes said they were not ready to plead. The judge left the door open for lawyers to mount an insanity defense later.
Holmes walked into the courtroom in Centennial, Colo., and locked eyes with his parents, who were sitting in the second row of the courtroom. He did not show any emotion.
The judge set an Aug. 5 trial date. Prosecutors will announce by April 1 whether they will seek the death penalty.
