Accused movie theatre gunman James Holmes will have to stand trial after a Colorado judge ruled the prosecution has shown probable cause.

Holmes is charged with 24 counts of first-degree murder after the shooting at the screening of Batman movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in Aurora, Denver last July.

Twelve people died and 58 were injured.

Holmes, 25, is described by his lawyers as suffering from an unspecified mental illness.
