Theater shooting suspect due back in court

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) -- The man charged with the Colorado movie theater shootings is due back in court for a hearing that was delayed last month after he was taken to a hospital for undisclosed reasons.

Defense attorneys told a judge James Holmes couldn't attend a hearing that had been scheduled for Nov. 15. They withheld details, saying they didn't want to reveal privileged medical or psychiatric information.

The judge postponed the hearing until Monday.

Denver media outlets, citing unnamed sources, reported Holmes was injured when he hit his head on a wall, apparently intentionally. Authorities wouldn't comment.

Holmes is charged with fatally shooting 12 people and injuring at least 58 in a crowded theater in July.
