The Denver Post said the hearing was to take place before 18th Judicial District Judge William Sylvester but it wasn't clear whether Holmes would be present.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others July 20 at the Century Aurora16 theater during a showing of "The Dark Knight Rises."
