AURORA, Colo. — James E. Holmes was ordered to stand trial Thursday on charges he killed 12 people and wounded dozens more in a shooting rampage at a midnight screening of a “Batman” movie last summer.

Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester ruled that prosecutors had shown probable cause that Holmes committed the crimes and ordered him bound for trial on all counts.

He said Holmes should continue to be held without bail.

Holmesmovie-suspect-5 is due to be arraigned Friday, but his defense attorneys filed papers Thursday saying he’s not ready to enter a plea.

They are likely to ask for the arraignment to be delayed.
