Theater shooting trial day 18: Notebook to be introduced into evidence
The Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes - resumes after a 4-day weekend. Today, prosecutors are expected to call two state-appointed doctors who evaluated the gunman after the shootings. 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 oh ok. Wow there were a lot of us CO there?
by Joey5/26/2015 9:08:20 PM
@Phil thanks for posting pics!
by Suzanne5/26/2015 9:08:21 PM
About the desire to Kill really hurt the DT IMHO.
by NT85/26/2015 9:08:22 PM
@ Colorado folks, The Honor Flag is now on its way to your state. My thoughts and prayers come with it.
by NT85/26/2015 9:08:28 PM
I think JH probably planned for an insanity plea and did much research in advance to help his case. But that's just my opinion.
by Angela Freeman5/26/2015 9:08:30 PM
@NT8 thank you! And thank you for your support.
by Joey5/26/2015 9:09:48 PM
@joey, 6 cars at the least. I think they along with the Nebraska State Patrol will escort the Honor flag to colorado.
by NT85/26/2015 9:11:36 PM
@Angela - I was thinking the same thing - he researched mental illness. To me that's a BIG red flag
by RGMimi5/26/2015 9:11:36 PM
@Angela I completely agree. Especially since the notebook has "the research" he was creating his own case. And he did say there was 99% of getting caught. So the other 10% could be that he wouldn't make it out alive or that he would get off due to insanity.
by Joey5/26/2015 9:11:37 PM
Apparently you lost a Leo/First Responder. So That is not good news either Joey.
by NT85/26/2015 9:11:38 PM
The fact that He states He may will likely be caught shows He knew his actions were illegal.
by Abrandt5/26/2015 9:20:53 PM
I'd be willing to bet most people with mental illness have researched it and made notes, etc.
by Lynn5/26/2015 9:20:54 PM
I'm haunted by what JH wrote about having the obsession to kill since he was a kid. Tells me it's something that was always on his mind and he finally followed through with that obsession.....gives me chills!
by Liz5/26/2015 9:20:55 PM
Can JH have water in court?
by Amy5/26/2015 9:20:57 PM
This PT (Edson)- clicks his pen a lot while he is questioning people on the witness stand
by Victoria5/26/2015 9:20:58 PM
Buffering city here again today.
by NT85/26/2015 9:20:59 PM
@Angela, I 100% agree with you!
by Liz5/26/2015 9:21:01 PM
@NT8 :( yeah I know. It's sad to say that this is the world we live in. BUt we can only overcome things together and as a community.
by Joey5/26/2015 9:21:03 PM
I would love to know the total so far of what JH spent on everything and am I correct that everything he paid for with regards to the shooting was paid for on a credit card that his parents didn't have access to?
by Tammy5/26/2015 9:21:04 PM
$500 and they charged shipping?
by NT85/26/2015 9:21:06 PM
Can JH have water in court?
by Amy5/26/2015 9:21:07 PM
@NT8...I'm sorry for your loss. :(
by Tammy5/26/2015 9:21:11 PM
Phil, Marshall or Anica...Is there a running total of all of his revealed purchases? And if not, would you be willing to do one??
by Brenda5/26/2015 9:21:14 PM
Well I guess Anica has Discovered the Donut Bar that Phil brought in two weeks ago.....
by NT85/26/2015 9:21:18 PM
JH googled ~rationsk insanity~ A APD Cybercrime detective testifed to that during a pre trail hearing.
by KWinland5/26/2015 9:21:32 PM
Can't concentrate on his ebay buy in the wake of the notebook. Mind is still reeling.
by Kristle5/26/2015 9:21:33 PM
@Joey That is what I was trying to convey in my statement earlier. I also believe that it was intended that this notebook would be used in his insanity plea. That's why he mailed it to his physiologist and not the police.
7NEWSProsecutors revealed Tuesday morning that they intend to introduce the movie theater shooting gunman's notebook.
by Phil Tenser5/26/2015 9:23:37 PM
@ Jaclyn Green, I like your thinking!
by NT85/26/2015 9:23:40 PM
Again buffering like crazy and scribble is stinking.... making me fried! LOL And have to refresh to make another comment???

by NT85/26/2015 9:26:59 PM
@Brenda: You can find that information on our timeline of the case - bit.ly
by anica.padilla5/26/2015 9:28:24 PM
by Kristle5/26/2015 9:28:29 PM
@NT8 - HA! Right? That's an outrage. Shipping fee on $500...
by Angela Freeman5/26/2015 9:28:30 PM
as I am sure AC has already been Captured!!
by NT85/26/2015 9:32:29 PM
WOW- he is spending a lot of money!!!! I guess that JH thought that he wouldn't have to pay for his crime (literally) with all the spending he's doing- where are was MasterCard going to send the bill- prison, mental hospital????
by Victoria5/26/2015 9:32:38 PM
Hatch is being cross-examined about the kind of account the defendant used
by Phil Tenser5/26/2015 9:33:14 PM
I was out for a bit, what did JH buy on eBay?
by Rheba5/26/2015 9:34:40 PM
Hmmmm Higge can't do accounting?
by NT85/26/2015 9:37:40 PM
Hatch says that their system used the credit card number to organize all of the purchases made with the defendant's particular card
by Phil Tenser5/26/2015 9:38:57 PM
DT is up to exhibit 24
by Victoria5/26/2015 9:41:06 PM
Do you think the jury relates to DT or the PT more?
by SRyan5/26/2015 9:44:45 PM
WOW Phil, If you must take charge then Just do it dude. Make no bones about it.
