Judge Delays Ruling on Whether James Holmes Can Enter Not Guilty By Reason of Insanity Plea

Alleged Aurora shooter


Lawyers for the Colorado theater shooting suspect told a judge Monday he wants to change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity, but the judge won't rule on whether to allow that yet.

Attorney Daniel King made the request in court, saying the defense now has a diagnosis for James Holmes, though he didn't specify what it was.
