DENVER (AP) - After weeks of secrecy surrounding the Colorado theater shooting case, most of the documents filed in court were released to the public.
One thing that came to light: The defense has a psychiatry expert on its defense team and plans to use him as an expert. It gives further insight into a possible insanity defense by 24-year-old James Holmes.
Holmes faces 152 charges in the July 20 shooting at an Aurora movie theater that killed 12 people and injured 58 others.
Defense attorneys claim Holmes is mentally ill and sought the help of a university psychiatrist before the shooting, raising the possibility that Holmes will plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
