Alleged Colorado cinema gunman James Holmes has been formally charged with 142 criminal counts in one of America's worst mass shootings.

He faces 24 counts of murder, two for each of the 12 people killed, and 116 counts of attempted murder, two each for the 58 injured.

For each person killed he faces a count of murder with deliberation and one of murder with extreme in-difference.

If convicted, the 24-year-old could face the death penalty.

Jame Holmes opened fire at random in a crowded movie theatre premiering the Batman film ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in Aurora near Denver on the 20th of July.
