CENTENNIAL, Colo., Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Prosecutors in the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting Wednesday showed suspect James Holmes photographed the theater a month before the July killings.

The prosecution introduced photos taken June 29, July 5 and July 11 that depicted the theater's interior, back doors and door hinges, The Denver Post reported.

Wednesday was the third and last day of testimony in the preliminary hearing for Holmes, who is charged with killing 12 people and injuring at least 58 others.

Prosecutors finished presenting their evidence. The defense did not call any witnesses or make any statements to the court. The judge will decide whether there is enough evidence to go to trial. A hearing is scheduled for Friday, the Post reported.

Other photos introduced into evidence show images Holmes took of himself the night of the massacre.

The photos tend to show Holmes' "identity, deliberation and extreme indifference," prosecutors said in explaining why they introduced Holmes's self photos.

Photos show attack gear spread neatly on Holmes's bed and items found at the shooting scene, the Post reported.

One photo showed Holmes posing with an assault rifle and most of the ballistics he had on himself when he was caught, a witness said.
