Batman cinema shooting accused admitted to hospital

Accused Colorado cinema gunman James Holmes has been taken to the hospital on yesterday for an unspecified condition which left him unable to attend a court hearing due tomorrow, his lawyers told an emergency court hearing.

"What occurred was mid-day yesterday. We were informed of a situation that involved a trip to a hospital," Holmes' attorney Tamara Brady said in court, giving scant further details but adding: "It's not as simple as a migraine."
