Judge orders suspected Colorado movie theater shooter bolted to the floor

The Colorado movie theater massacre suspect will be bolted to the floor during his four-month trial.

Defense attorneys argued jurors would get the impression James Holmes is guilty if he wore shackles.

A judge ruled Holmes will wear a hidden harness with cables anchored to the floor, instead.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 during a showing of the “The Dark Knight Rises.”
