Judge Rules Prosecutors Can Use Evidence From James Holmes' Apartment

Defense argued search of the apartment was illegal because it was conducted without a warrant


DENVER (AP)—A judge says prosecutors in the Colorado theater shootings can use evidence found in defendant James Holmes' apartment, which includes homemade bombs and a calendar with the day of the shootings highlighted.

In a ruling dated Friday, the judge rejected defense arguments that the apartment search was illegal because it began before police had a warrant.
