CENTENNIAL, Colo. – Another state-appointed psychiatrist who examined the Colorado theater shooter is testifying in James Holmes' death penalty trial.
Prosecutors say Jeffrey Metzner determined Holmes was legally sane when he killed 12 people and injured 70 more in a packed suburban Denver theater. Metzner said Monday that he interviewed Holmes and wrote a 128-page report on his findings.
Metzner was the first doctor to examine Holmes after he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the July 2012 attack.
Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. later ordered a second evaluation, agreeing with prosecutors that Metzner's examination was incomplete. The second court-appointed psychiatrist, William Reid, testified last week that he, too, found Holmes mentally ill but legally sane.
Holmes' attorneys say he suffers schizophrenia and couldn't tell right from wrong during the attack.
