Colo. Theater Shooter Wants Insanity Plea

May 09, 2013  | 

James Holmes wants to plead not guilty by reason of insanity to the killing of 12 people and the injuring of 70 others in the Aurora movie theater attack.

In a one-page court filing Tuesday, Holmes' lawyers wrote they intend to "tender a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity."

Holmes would need the judge's permission to change his plea from the standard not guilty plea currently entered on his behalf. Judge Carlos Samour Jr. wrote in an order Tuesday that he will allow Holmes' attorneys to argue at a hearing Monday morning that they have "good cause" for the plea change.

"After the Court determines whether 'good cause' exists, it will decide how to proceed," Samour wrote in his order.
