James Holmes, suspect of the Aurora, Colo. movie theater shootings, was charged with 142 counts Monday, said the Denver Post.
Among the charges are 24 counts of first-degree murder, with two counts for each victim killed, said Time.
Prosecutors charged Holmes under two different theories of murder. The first is murder after deliberation and the second is murder with indifference to life, said the Denver Post.
Although prosecution has not announced whether they will pursue the death penalty for Holmes, law professor at the University of Denver Sam Kamin said to Time, "All expectation is that the prosecution will seek the death penalty."
Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 more in a July 20 movie theater shooting.
