Tag: James Holmes accused, James Holmes second psychiatric evaluation, shooting a movie theater in Colorado

James Holmes alleged mental incapacity.

James Holmes, accused of shooting a movie theater in Colorado, must be subjected to a second psychiatric evaluation at the state mental hospital because the first was “incomplete and inadequate”, the judge ruled Wednesday in the case.

District Judge Arapahoe County Carlos A. Samour Jr. agreed with the prosecution that the first evaluation, conducted last summer, had faults. The prosecution has sought the death penalty for the accused, and the fate of Holmes probably lies in whether the jury decides he was sane or insane at the time of the attack.
