A judge in the US has entered an automatic plea of not guilty for James Holmes, the man accused of killing and injuring dozens in the 'Batman cinema shooting' in Colorado last July.
Judge William Sylvester said Holmes, 25, can change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity later, if he chooses. Such a change could be the only way Holmes could avoid life in prison or execution.
