Lawyers: Colo shooting suspect can't go to hearing

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Defense lawyers say the man charged with the Colorado movie theater killings has an unspecified condition that will keep him from attending a court hearing scheduled for Thursday.

Court documents filed Wednesday didn't give any details of James E. Holmes' condition. The documents said only that Holmes' condition "renders him unable to be present in court for (Thursday's) hearing."

The defense asked the judge to postpone the hearing, which was scheduled to discuss pretrial motions and media requests for information under state open records laws.

It wasn't clear when the judge would rule on the request.

The 24-year-old Holmes is charged with killing 12 people and injuring at least 58 by opening fire in a crowded theater on July 20.

He's being held without bail and hasn't entered a plea.
