Judge: Parents of Colorado theater shooting suspect will be allowed to attend trial

A judge says the parents of the man accused of killing 12 people and wounding 70 others at a Colorado movie theater can sit in on his trial.

Judge Carlos A. Samour previously granted a request from James Holmes' attorneys to sequester witnesses at his trial that is set to start in February, but his attorneys wanted an exception for Holmes' parents. Prosecutors didn't object, and the judge granted the request Monday.

The judge also asked the sides to schedule a hearing on images prosecutors might present at trial. Holmes' attorneys want to limit graphic images of victims' injuries.

Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to more than 160 counts, including murder stemming from the July 20 theater attack in Aurora. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
