Day 43 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, the defense is expected to call more doctors who treated the gunman after the shooting. During the course of the trial, prosecutors will argue that Holmes, the admitted gunman, was sane when he went into the midnight premiere of the Dark Knight Rises in an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater and opened fire on the audience, killing 12 and wounding 70. His defense attorneys will try to spare Holmes’ life by arguing that he was insane. 7NEWS and TheDenverChannel.com will have gavel to gavel coverage of the trial starting at 8:15 a.m. (MST) everyday and ending around 5:30 p.m. (MST) Watch new live video on our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/7NewsDenver/live Additional resources:LIVE VIDEO & BLOG: http://bit.ly/theatertrialTIMELINE of the case: http://bit.ly/theatertimelineJURY PROFILE: http://bit.ly/theaterjury CONTINUING COVERAGE: http://bit.ly/theatercoverage
So, let me get this straight. I'm an engineer and have been through my share of textbooks. At the end of say, my Thermodynamics textbook, there is a list of references where the author sites where he/she got some of his/her information, say Heat Transfer. There are usually a few hundred references. Is the DT's argument that since I had the textbook, I should be completely familiar with the other hundred textbooks listed in the references? You know, because I had access to their names and all???
But I have not heard them say they are going to show slides that were done on JH brain. IMO those are the only ones that matter. DO they have a MRI from before the shooting? And there again why did the DT wait so long to have a MRI done?
King!?!?! Did you stare at a sparkler for too long this weekend? How in the world can you say that Dr. Reid's 22 hours of video taped psych interview not contribute to his final diagnosis? YOU, Sir are CrAzY!
Anica, for your legal begal : In the case of a jury trial like this, where the defense wants to show slides that will not be admitted as evidence but shown to the jury for demonstrative value. Is that not confusing to the jury?
