A judge set a new trial date Thursday for accused mass murderer James Holmes, the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooter. The trial, initially slated to start this month, is now scheduled to begin Oct. 14, but District Judge Carlos Samour said the date may change again because Holmes' lawyers are planning to challenge a recent order to have a new sanity evaluation done. Holmes, 26, is charged with multiple counts of first-degree murder and attempted murder related to the July 2012 shooting spree during the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises" that left 12 dead and 70 others wounded.
