CENTENNIAL, Colo. - The man accused of shooting dead 12 people in a Colorado movie theater made his first appearance in court on Monday, sitting silently in a red jailhouse jump suit and with his hair dyed bright red.


Formal charges against James Eagan Holmes, 24, will be filed on July 30, the judge presiding over the proceeding said. A public defender was appointed as his attorney.


Holmes was apprehended moments after the massacre. Police say they are still searching for a motive for the crime.


On a live television broadcast of the proceedings, Holmes could be seen sitting silently, looking straight ahead, occasionally closing his eyes.
