James Holmes, the man accused of mass murder at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado had his first court appearance Monday.

FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports from outside the courthouse in Centennial, Colorado:

 James Holmes, with his red hair mostly looked toward the ground as the judge read him his rights here in the Arapahoe County Courthouse.

He'll be formally charged next week. Lead Prosecutor Carol Chambers tells us she'll be talking to victims' families in her consideration of seeking the death penalty.

(Chambers) "If the death penalty is sought, that's a very long process that impacts their lives for years. We will want to get their input before making any kind of a decision on that."

Some family members were here in court to see the man accused of killing 12 and injuring dozens in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
