Holmes’ lawyers argue over evidence
CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the Colorado theater shooting case are battling over what evidence can be admitted during James Holmes’ murder trial — all in an attempt to build up or tear down the case that he was insane.
They were scheduled to argue today over statements Holmes made to police after he was arrested after the July 2012 shootings and taken to a police station.
On Wednesday, they sparred over evidence seized from Holmes’ car and computers. That included signs that one computer was allegedly used for an Internet search on the words “rational insanity,” and photos on his cellphone of himself holding firearms.
Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to more than 160 counts of murder and attempted murder.
