James Holmes could enter insanity plea today
CENTENNIAL, Colo. - The suspect in the Colorado theater massacre could enter an insanity plea at a hearing today -- or not.
The judge has indicated he will allow James Holmes to change his plea from not guilty to not guilty by reason of insanity, but Holmes' lawyers my decide to ask the state Supreme court to rule on the constitutionality of Colorado's insanity plea and death penalty laws. That could delay the case for a few days or longer, depending on whether the justices decide to consider the matter.
Holmes is charged with fatally shooting 12 people and injuring dozens of others in an attack at a suburban Denver movie theater in July.
