The judge overseeing the Colorado theater shooting case is refusing to delay the trial despite defense attorneys' requests for more time.

Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. ruled Wednesday, January 14, 2015 that James Holmes' attorneys have had enough time to review massive amounts of evidence in the case. The lawyers say they continue to receive new information from prosecutors, including notice of additional witnesses. They have repeatedly said they need more time, but their latest request came less than two weeks before 9,000 prospective jurors begin arriving at the courthouse.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the 2012 attack at a Denver-area theater. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. (AP)
