Trial date set in Colorado theater shooting case

Defense attorneys in the Colorado theater shooting case are asking for more time before the trial to interview the psychiatrist and others involved in defendant James Holmes' first sanity evaluation.

They say they can't get that and other tasks finished by the Dec. 8 trial date, but Arapahoe County District Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr. was unmoved Tuesday and stuck by the date.
Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the July 2012 attack. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
Holmes underwent a sanity evaluation last summer, but Samour ruled it was flawed and ordered another to take place this summer.
