Film killer in­sane call

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

A JURY will de­cide if “Bat­man” gun­man James Holmes was sane when he opened fire in a Colorado cin­ema in 2012. Lawyers sparred over whose psy­chi­atric ex­perts as­sessed Holmes’s men­tal state cor­rectly. The 27year- old’s de­fence is he should be found not guilty due to in­san­ity over the shoot­ings, in which 12 peo­ple died and 70 were in­jured. If found not guilty be­cause of in­san­ity, he will be con­fined to a state men­tal hos­pi­tal.
