The Colorado movie theater massacre suspect will be bolted to the floor during his four-month trial.
Defense attorneys argued jurors would get the impression James Holmes is guilty if he wore shackles.
A judge ruled Holmes will wear a hidden harness with cables anchored to the floor, instead.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 during a showing of the “The Dark Knight Rises.”
