Robert Lewis Dear, who is accused in the shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic, made his first appearance in court via video conference on Monday.
The judge advised Dear that he’s being held without bond on suspicion of first-degree murder.
Prosecutor Dan May said Monday that other charges are still possible. He didn’t elaborate.
Speaking after Dear’s first court appearance, May also said that he has been in touch with federal prosecutors about the case but didn’t say what they’ve been discussing.
Dear wore a white vest and blinked periodically as the judge spoke to him. He did not speak much. He said “yes” twice when asked if he understood his rights and the first-degree murder charges he faces. He responded “no questions” when the judge asked if he had any about the charges.
Dear is scheduled to be charged December 9.
