Jurors deliberated for a second day on Thursday in the capital trial of Colorado movie rampage gunman James Holmes, weighing whether he was sane when he killed 12 people and wounded 70 as they watched a midnight premiere of a Batman film.

The jury of nine women and three men submitted several written questions to Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour during their first day of deliberations on Wednesday, including asking for a white board and an index to the thousands of pieces of evidence brought up at trial.
