Victims Attend Colorado Theater Shooting Hearing

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) – Lawyers in the Colorado theater shooting case are back in court for a hearing on whether crime scene reconstruction experts should be allowed to testify at his trial.

Friday’s hearing is open to the public and media.

About 15 victims and the families of victims were in the court room. Defendant James Holmes is also scheduled to attend.

A hearing earlier this week was closed because the topic was whether Holmes should undergo another psychiatric evaluation, and the judge ruled the testimony would taint the jury pool.

The judge hasn’t said if he’ll allow another evaluation.

Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 at a Denver-area movie theater in July 2012. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
