DENVER (AP) -

Attorneys for Fox News reporter Jana Winter say her career and personal life are suffering severe hardships because of attempts to force her to reveal her sources for a story about Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes.

The lawyers filed a motion Tuesday asking the judge to quash a subpoena for Winter's testimony. They say Holmes' lawyers haven't shown the testimony is necessary despite months of trying.
    
Holmes is charged with killing 12 and injuring 70 in a theater in July.
    
Winter reported Holmes sent a psychiatrist a notebook containing violent drawings. She cited unnamed law-enforcement officials.
    
Holmes' lawyers say the leak violated a gag order. They also say law-enforcement officers might have lied when they testified they weren't Winter's source, undermining their credibility if they testify at the trial.
