Aurora movie theater shooting trial day 20: Videotaped interviews with gunman to be played in court
Day 20 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, prosecutors plan to question state-appointed psychiatrist Dr. William Reid to the stand and play videotaped interviews between the doctor and the gunman. 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, Colo., 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

@NT8, agreed AC can certainly go toe to toe with King with no problem.
by Liz5/28/2015 5:44:59 PM
Oh my goodness. I like Dr. Reid even more now.

Betting King is now trying to get the video thrown out. "he just said it all Judge"
by NT85/28/2015 5:47:10 PM
King is such a baby. He knew this was coming!

Notice the DT, Ms. Morris is it, seated to the right of JH, freaking out!! They have to get out of THAT statement somehow.
by Kristle5/28/2015 5:47:26 PM
@Valm there have been studies that show different brain areas lighting up on MRI when schizo/psychopath patients are asked a predetermined set of questions. It's not an exact science or complete proof as of yet as far as I know.
by Abrandt5/28/2015 5:47:30 PM
Somebody tell King that Polished cotton went out in the early 80's!
by NT85/28/2015 5:47:34 PM
If this objection is overruled there is little the DT can provide as defense.
by Harold Finch5/28/2015 5:47:48 PM
Now we see why King has on his zoot suit, lol!!
by Kristle5/28/2015 5:48:42 PM
@anrandt...thanks but would have to see it to believe it.
by Valm465/28/2015 5:51:28 PM
King is in charge of Bling!
by Tired5/28/2015 5:51:30 PM
best part of the trial so far!
by Nichole Jarzab5/28/2015 5:51:32 PM
I too agree that Mr. King is feverishly arguing that the witness' last statement be stricken...LOL!!!!! Very damming...
by Robin5/28/2015 5:51:37 PM
Hurry up, dang it!
by AMeeMan5/28/2015 5:51:40 PM
The DT had a limited budget and I imagine that King et al did not do their discovery correctly or plan for this obvious testimony.
by Harold Finch5/28/2015 5:51:43 PM
The DT writing furiously.
by Kristle5/28/2015 5:51:45 PM
Does anyone know if there are any empty spectator seats? I read that there were during some of the CSI testimony but don't know if there are now that it has heated up.
by Ann5/28/2015 5:51:54 PM
Dr. Reid's opinion will come out regardless if the DT likes it or not. He was court appointed for his opinion and He will give it in front of the Jury.
by Abrandt5/28/2015 5:51:57 PM
@Harold...a) nice name b) agreed re: knowing right from wrong. from what I've seen it isn't looking too good for him
by Niki C5/28/2015 5:52:02 PM
COL Sanders is frying some chicken!! LOL!! Look out!!
by Kristle5/28/2015 5:52:08 PM
It looks like DT is intensely trying to convince the judge while proc is holding back and watching the discussion.
by Tammy Garrison5/28/2015 5:52:12 PM
Whom has the more qualified PSYchiatrists/
by NT85/28/2015 5:52:18 PM
The second chair for DT is about to crawl out of her seat!!!
by Robin5/28/2015 5:52:20 PM
Judge Samour releases jury for lunch after Dr. Reid answers just one question.
by anica.padilla5/28/2015 5:52:46 PM
@Kristie I agree makes me think of that old line if you can't dazzle them with brilliance then baffle them with Bull^&%&* The suit is a distraction for the Jury so they don't pay as much attention to the Dr.
by Abrandt5/28/2015 5:52:53 PM
seems like no one saw that statement coming so soon lol
by RWalk5/28/2015 5:52:58 PM
Aww man, what did I miss? What's being objected to?
by Angela Freeman5/28/2015 5:53:01 PM
No no no! There was air in the water pipes last night from about 11pm to about 1am, horrible noise. (my freakin Dad diagnosed the problem and gave me the solution to get rid of the noise over the phone because no one from maintenance was calling me back!) It's just NOW that maintenance is getting around to fixing it! They need to be quiet! Don't they know I've been waiting a month for this testimony!?
by Penguins2195/28/2015 5:53:08 PM
Time for a plea bargain???
by FMM5/28/2015 5:53:10 PM
My goodness, the DT looks to be having a nervous breakdown. What happened?
by Angela Freeman5/28/2015 5:53:12 PM
@Kristie--I'm crying because I am laughing so hard right now.
by Tired5/28/2015 5:53:44 PM
by Joey5/28/2015 5:53:44 PM
The Jury now has the fact that the Dr. thinks JH is sane during lunch! What a thought to leave them with!
by Abrandt5/28/2015 5:55:26 PM
NO PLEA BARGAINS...
by Robin5/28/2015 5:55:30 PM
@FMM the DT already pleaded , but were refused.
by Harold Finch5/28/2015 5:55:32 PM
There is something for being said about what has been heard cannot subconciously be unheard, even when told to ignore it, so either way, proc has scored a hit
by Tammy Garrison5/28/2015 5:55:37 PM
Lunch break! Noo!
by AMeeMan5/28/2015 5:55:40 PM
Question; How damming was Dr. Reid saying He felt JH was sane rt away?
by Abrandt5/28/2015 5:56:01 PM
by Kristle5/28/2015 5:56:05 PM
noooo i wanna know whats going to happen!
by Nichole Jarzab5/28/2015 5:56:22 PM
Well, I was asking what was contained in the emails the jury received?
by Tammy Garrison5/28/2015 5:56:24 PM
This sucks it reminds me of a show's season finale!!!
