Survivors to wed on anniversary of Aurora theater shootings

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - A young couple who survived the Aurora theater shootings have scheduled their wedding for the anniversary of the tragedy.

Eugene Han and Kirstin Davis tell a television station they decided to get married on July 20 to make it a happier day.

Han was shot in the hip and knee and Davis says she suffered minor scratches in the assault on a packed movie theater.

Twelve people were killed and 70 injured. James Holmes is charged with multiple counts of murder and attempted murder, and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. Holmes' lawyers say he wants to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.

Davis says the July 20 wedding date was Han's idea.

Davis says they want to show that "Bad things happen, but you can keep going."
