Former University of Colorado Denver grad student James Holmes will learn the charges against him when he appears in court this morning.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others at the Batman movie premiere in Aurora, Colo.

The charges are expected to include a dozen first-degree murder counts.

Holmes is not expected to enter a plea and legal analysts believe the case will be dominated by arguments over his sanity.
