Aurora Theater Shooting

James Holmes hearing: Will jurors be asked about favorite TV shows?

Accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes was back in court today for the first of several motions hearings that will take place over the next three weeks.

Today, prosecutors and Holmes's defense attorneys discussed which questions will appear on the questionnaire given to the 6,000 prospective jurors the judge plans to summon and whether records from and Adult Friend Finder accounts allegedly belonging to Holmes can be used as evidence at his trial, which lawyers said may last several months.
