The trial for accused Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes could take more than half a year. A judge in the case issued an order Wednesday, saying he expects the whole process to take up to eight months. There is little question about whether Holmes is the killer, but other issues could prolong the case. District court judge Carlos Samour Junior says jurors will be told jury selection could go on for two-to-three months. A major issue to be resolved concerns Holmes' mental health, since he's pleading not guilty by reason of insanity. Jury selection is expected to begin in February. Holmes is accused of shooting in a crowded theater in Aurora, Colorado in July 2012. A total of 12 people died, and more than 70 were wounded.
