(DENVER) — Wednesday was the second day of jury selection in the trial of James Holmes, the man who has admitted to killing 12 people at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater in 2012.

Holmes appeared in court for the second consecutive day, wearing a similar outfit as he did on Tuesday — a dark coat, khaki pants, a dress shirt and glasses. One potential juror was released to go to a hospital after arriving violently ill, vomiting and requesting an ambulance. That juror is expected to return later.

A small number of potential jurors were released over concerns, including the inability to speak English.

Holmes sat in his chair, rocking back and forth and listening to the judge. He is pleading not guilty by reason of insanity.

Through two days, the jury pool still contains about 7,000 potential jurors.
