     CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado prosecutor says the suspect in the mass shooting at a midnight Batman film screening could face the death penalty.
     Eighteenth Judicial District Attorney Carol Chambers said Monday that her office is considering pursuing that punishment against James Holmes. She says a decision will be made in consultation with victims' families. 
     Holmes makes his first court appearance Monday. The 24-year-old former graduate student is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.
