Judge bars public, media from part of pretrial hearing in Colorado theater shooting case

For the second time, the media and other members of the public will be barred from a pretrial hearing in the Colorado theater shooting case.

The judge said Thursday that part of a May 5-6 hearing will be closed while attorneys discuss a questionnaire that prospective jurors will fill out.

Another part of the hearing will be open, when the two sides discuss other jury selection procedures. The judge says those matters will be handled first, and then the courtroom will be closed.

A January hearing on whether defendant James Holmes should undergo a second psychiatric evaluation was also closed.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in July 2012. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

The trial is scheduled to start in October.
