Monday's court appearance comes after a weekend of funerals and memorial services for the victims. On Saturday, family and friends gathered outside Dayton, Ohio, to honor Matt McQuinn, who died while shielding his girlfriend from gunfire.
"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends," said Herb Shaffer, McQuinn's uncle. "In a moment of crisis, you don't have time to think about what you're going to do, all you have time is to react."
Jessica Ghawi was remembered in San Antonio, Texas, by her brother, Jordan, who encouraged mourners to turn the tragedy into something positive. "If this coward could have done this with this much hate, imagine what we can do with this much love," he said.
Ghawi, a 24-year-old aspiring sports broadcaster, had narrowly avoided a shooting incident at a Toronto mall less than two months before the killings in Colorado.
"If you're putting your dreams on hold, you stop that right now," her brother said. "You don't know how long you have here."
A private service was held in Crystal Lake, Illinois, for John Larimer, a 27-year-old Navy petty officer, who received full military honors.
