Judge: Psychiatrist can video-record 2nd sanity evaluation of theater shooting defendant

The judge in the Colorado theater shootings case says a psychiatrist can video-record the second sanity evaluation of defendant James Holmes.

Holmes' lawyers had objected to video, but the judge ruled Thursday the defense didn't show it would interfere with the examination.

The judge also said state law doesn't forbid video.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the 2012 attack.

He underwent a sanity evaluation last summer. The key finding hasn't been released, but prosecutors asked for a new one, saying the doctor who conducted the first was biased.

The judge ordered the second evaluation after ruling the first was flawed.

The psychiatrist who will conduct the new exam said video provides a better record than handwritten notes.
