Newly released documents show prosecutors have added 12 names to the list of people allegedly targeted by the suspect in the Colorado theater shootings.

The names were made public Friday, a day after the judge in the case ordered the release.

James Eagan Holmes originally was charged with 142 counts alleging he killed 12 people and injured 58 in a movie theater on July 20.

In September and October, prosecutors filed 24 more counts of attempted murder against Holmes. The names of the alleged victims were redacted from court documents, so the number of additional alleged victims was previously unknown.

The newly released documents don't say whether any of the 12 additional people were injured. Prosecutors declined to comment.

Holmes is being held without bail. He hasn't entered a plea.
