Day 34 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, CU psychiatrist Dr. Feinstein will return to the stand. 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
King really swiveling today!! Butter oil the chair soon.

Yowler was transported in an ambulance with another victim who lost a finger.
by anica.padilla6/18/2015 3:47:19 PM
I really wish they would stop objecting the victims. I know it is the DT to win, but it comes across so rude and insensitive.
by Suzanne6/18/2015 3:47:39 PM
sorry if I missed this earlier. But yowler looks pregnant.
by bob6/18/2015 3:47:42 PM
Is King and JH in rhythm in their chair swinging??
by Suzanne6/18/2015 3:47:43 PM
Sometimes JH and King swivel in sync. At least King doesn't yawn during victim testimony though.
by flip6/18/2015 3:48:26 PM
@Suzanne--I noticed the same thing!
by flip6/18/2015 3:48:27 PM
Yowler's right kneecap was shattered into multiple pieces.
by anica.padilla6/18/2015 3:48:58 PM
I wish we knew what was going through JH's mind while these victims are testifying.
by melissa6/18/2015 3:54:52 PM
Spengler isn't wearing her beige heels today, hmmm.
by Kristle6/18/2015 3:54:54 PM
They SHOULD press down on the chairs lever so JH can't swivel.
by Kristle6/18/2015 3:55:05 PM
DT objecting more and more at the end of PT case time. will PT do the same towards the end of DT's case time? Is this normal?
by sheila6/18/2015 3:55:08 PM
@bob: Yowler looks pregnant? Hmmm.
by Kristle6/18/2015 3:55:10 PM
JH trying to hypnotize the jury with his swiveling, "I'm insane, I'm insane, I'm insane...."
by flip6/18/2015 3:55:12 PM
not again today. Sidebar Really
by Sheri Reining6/18/2015 3:55:22 PM
No one else on the DT acts nearly as asinine as Spengler does. She's the only one who barks objections, interrupting victims incessantly. And gets overruled most of the time, so therefore, is needlessly interrupting them to boot! I hope the Prosecution does this every chance they get during the defenses direct examinations!

@7 - Anica - Does Rule 804-4 (hearsay declarant unavailable due to death) mean that a deposition was given and then the declarant died and is unavailable to testify or would it be appropriate in this case? And if not that, why not 804-2 (Statement under belief of impending death) can we please ask the legal analyst for clarification?

@NikiC: I will save your question for our expert.
by anica.padilla6/18/2015 3:55:50 PM
Way to go, DT....leave the victim sitting up there during your endless objections.
by flip6/18/2015 3:56:03 PM
Why can't they get a new mouse?
by 19186/18/2015 4:01:33 PM
JH ogling the victim's wounds again...
by flip6/18/2015 4:01:35 PM
Again with the mouse...Is there not another one somewhere in that courthouse?
by Michele6/18/2015 4:01:36 PM
A new court reporter.
by Kristle6/18/2015 4:01:47 PM
Thank you Anica
by Niki C6/18/2015 4:01:48 PM
No one ever taught Spengler "yes sir, no sir, thank you, please"
by 19186/18/2015 4:01:55 PM
@Kristie--where in Virginia are you? I lived in Williamsburg for 18 years. Are you on the peninsula?
by Tired6/18/2015 4:01:57 PM
I have to step out again (que the awwwww no), don't think I will be back on to hear dr. Feinstein this afternoon, but I might.....will catchup later.
by Kristle6/18/2015 4:01:59 PM
Oh, the PT will indeed provide objections. Yea, get a new mouse, no? ;)
by lildeuce326/18/2015 4:02:19 PM
JH's been taking peeks to the bottom right area of the PT area.
by CindyL6/18/2015 4:11:25 PM
I honestly don't understand why yall get so upset over the DT making objections. They are supposed to- they can't wait until someone finish talking or when it is convenient. They need to do their job- otherwise JH could claim his defense was inadequate leading to a new trial!

@Tired: Quantico. Take notes for me today ;) see ya later or tomorrow morning. Everyone have a good day!
by Kristle6/18/2015 4:11:36 PM
What time will court be ending tomorrow? I understand they are quitting early.
by imnotreallyhere6/18/2015 4:11:39 PM
@ Della (me) - I think that Higgs and Nelson are just as bad as Spengler. King would be too if he spoke more. I know I'm bias.
by Suzanne6/18/2015 4:11:43 PM
Phil---You're the man!
by Tired6/18/2015 4:11:44 PM
JH looking at the victims photographs of their injuries and his handy work makes me sick! Why don't they just shoot his knee caps, paralyze him, shoot off his finger, etc. and see how he feels about what he did then. This whole case is starting to frustrate me and make me sick with all the "fairness" to him! These victims and survivors had no choices...he shouldn't get any either....starting to believe legal system is a bit backa$$wards! Gotta protect JH's rights...ugh! Ok..done with soapbox! I apologize!
by Tammy6/18/2015 4:25:06 PM
Back from a surprise phone call from Sailor. Did Phil get into the hearsay question? Glad that Judge is explaining why letting in the application and tax stuff, r.e. my earlier question.
by DocJ6/18/2015 4:25:15 PM
imnotreallyhere: Court ends at 3:30 tomorrow.
by Barb6/18/2015 4:25:18 PM
I wonder why they won't talk about how JH was performing experiments on his own central nervous system in the lab? There are email conversation that allude to that in court documents on the Colorado Judicial Branch website Cases of Interest section. Anyone else familiar with this?
by lildeuce326/18/2015 4:25:23 PM
My understanding is that Matt McQuinn was shot the most of any victim - a total of 9 times
by Eric S6/18/2015 4:25:35 PM
IMO being a good defense attorney doesn't mean objecting to everything.
by Michele6/18/2015 4:25:38 PM
It is OK for some of us to not like the DT.
by Really?6/18/2015 4:25:41 PM
@chess .. I totally agree. Not only does DT HAVE to object to reserve rights for appeals, of which there will be many, they do not need to be subject to appeal on Ineffective assistance of counsel.
