The sister of the man accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 in a Colorado movie theater is making headlines for a song she wrote years before the July 20th attack.

According to our affiliate KDVR, the song appeared on the YouTube page of Chris Holmes, the younger sister of suspected gunman James E. Holmes, about two years ago. The YouTube page has since been taken down.

On Monday, James Holmes was charged with 24 counts of first-degree murder — two counts for each of the 12 people killed in the shooting.
