The judge in the Colorado cinema shooting has banned cameras at next Monday’s formal charging of the suspect.

During James Eagan Holmes first court appearance the 24-year-old was filmed with his distinctive dyed orange hair and appeared to be sleepy and dazed.

Holmes was arrested behind the cinema shortly after the massacre in which 12 people were shot dead. Last Friday a gunman burst in on a screening of the new Batman film, “ The Dark Knight Rises” and opened fire.

Yesterday, actor Christian Bale who plays Batman visited a floral shrine created for the victims.

Fifty-eight people were also injured in the shooting, some of them critically.

A 21-year-old woman who escaped injury has given birth to a baby boy while her husband lies in the same hospital in a coma with a gunshot wound to the head.
