(CNN) -- The suspect in the Colorado theater shooting has offered to plead guilty.

According to court documents, the plea bargain would see 25-year-old James Holmes spend the rest of his life in prison.

But prosecutors haven't accepted the offer because they may choose to pursue the death penalty.

Holmes is accused of opening fire inside a showing of a Batman film in Aurora back in July, killing 12 people and injuring 58.

Prosecutors say they will make a decision on whether to seek the death penalty at a hearing April 1.
