CENTENNIAL, Colo. -

Prosecutors in the Colorado theater shootings have received defendant James Holmes' mental health records from the state hospital and a university he attended.

Prosecutors are entitled to the records because Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to murder and attempted-murder charges.
    
He's accused of killing 12 and injuring 70 in a July 2012 attack. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
    
Holmes was treated by a psychiatrist at the University of Colorado, Denver and underwent a sanity evaluation at the state hospital.
    
At Monday's hearing, the judge said he would seat 12 alternate jurors as well as the regular 12-member jury.
    
He also said he will issue 6,000 jury summonses, up from 5,000 originally planned.
