COLORADO - Accused Colorado theater shooter James Holmes could face the death penalty if convicted.
On Thursday, a Colorado judge denied four defense motions to exclude the death penalty as possible punishment.
Holmes has entered a insanity defense and is currently undergoing a second mental evaluation to determine if he is fit to stand trial.
The 26 year-old is charged with killing 12 people and injuring 70 others during a shooting inside an aurora movie theater in 2012.
His lawyers have repeatedly asked the judge to rule out the death penalty but each motion has been denied.
Holmes' trial is scheduled to start in October
