The man accused of the mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater in 2012 now faces trial in October.

Judge Carlos Samour on Thursday set an Oct. 14 trial date for James Holmes. Holmes is charged in the 2012 Aurora theater shooting that killed 12 people and injured 70.

However, the judge said it's possible the trial may be further delayed as prosecutors and defense attorneys spar over sanity evaluations of Holmes.

Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
