(AURORA, Colo.) — A last-minute attempt by lawyers for alleged Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes to get the venue of his murder trial changed was denied by a judge on Thursday, with opening statements in the trial slated for next week.

Lawyers for Holmes had previously moved for a change of venue in April 2014, but that attempt was also denied.

Twenty-four jurors were seated last week. The opening statements are scheduled to begin on Monday.

Holmes is accused in the shooting that left 12 people dead and many more injured at an Aurora movie theater in 2013. He faces 24 counts of first-degree murder.
