The man accused of shooting dead 12 people in a cinema in Colorado has made his first appearance in court.
24-year-old James Holmes sat silently in a red jump suit with his hair dyed bright red.
Our Correspondent Chris Ship is in Colorado.
No charges were brought against him today. That will happen at a hearing in the same court next Monday.
Police say Holmes was dressed in body armor and carrying three guns when he opened fire at a packed screening of the new Batman movie on Friday.
Authorities are still searching for a motive for the crime.
On a live broadcast of the proceedings, Holmes could be seen sitting silently, looking straight ahead, occasionally closing his eyes.
Many Americans have vowed to deny Holmes the publicity they believe he craves by not uttering his name.
Holmes is being kept in solitary confinement to protect him from other prisoners.
Speaking after the court appearance Carol Chambers, District Attorney said:
Chambers also denied it would be a "slam dunk" case. She says "we will work very hard on it like any other case" and added the decision on whether to press for death penalty is still months away and it could be at least a year before he stands trial.
