CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- The father of one Colorado shooting victim sat staring at suspect James Holmes during his first court appearance.

Tom Teves sat in the front row Monday as a judge advised Holmes of the allegations against him. His son Alex Teves was killed in the Friday shooting at a packed movie theater.

Two women held hands tightly, one shaking her head.

Holmes showed little emotion during the hearing, which appeared to anger some family members of victims who attended.

David Sanchez, who waited outside the courthouse during Holmes' hearing, said his pregnant daughter escaped uninjured but her husband was shot in the head and was in critical condition. His daughter was delivering their baby on Monday.
