1. SOUNDBITE: district attorney for Arapahoe County, George Brauchler:

So far the court has yesterday, ruled that there is probable cause as you know to hold these charges and to hold the defendant for trial. He's also found that theirs is proof presumption evidence great and that is sufficient to hold him in custody without bond through these proceedings. I want you to understand and I want to emphasize that despite those findings by the court the charges in the case remain mere accusations and the defendant is entitled to that presumption of innocence in our criminal justice process until such time that he's proven otherwise. So in this case we have an arraignment scheduled for March the 12th. The purpose of the arraignment, that's where the defendant has an opportunity to enter a plea and there are varying pleas available to him to enter on that date. I want to protect the interest of all involved in this case, that is why comments are brief and I will not take further questions.

STORYLINE:

A judge on Friday delayed the arraignment of the man charged with the Colorado theater shooting until March despite objections from prosecutors and most of the victims and their families.

District Judge William Sylvester ruled Thursday night that prosecutors had presented sufficient evidence at a preliminary hearing to proceed toward trial on charges that James Holmes killed 12 people and injured 70 others at a suburban Denver movie theater on July 20.

Holmes, who is charged with multiple counts of first-degree murder and attempted murder, won't have to enter a plea until March 12 after the judge granted a defense motion to delay that proceeding.
