Lawyers for accused Colorado theater gunman want media leaks probed

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 09:11

James Holmes sits in court for an advisement hearing at the Arapahoe County Justice Center in CentennialBy Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Lawyers for accused movie theater gunman James Holmes are seeking a special prosecutor to probe whoever leaked to Fox News details about their client's plans to commit mass murder, a motion made public on Monday showed. As part of their effort to identify law-enforcement sources used in a story published five days after the July 2012 massacre, defense lawyers asked Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour to appoint an outside agency to trace the source of the leaks. Citing two unnamed law-enforcement officials, the online article by New York-based Fox News reporter Jana Winter said Holmes had sent a notebook outlining his plans to commit mass murder to a psychiatrist who was treating him. In their strongest words to date on the topic, public defenders said they reached an "almost inescapable conclusion that one or more of the law enforcement sources who testified... lied under oath and committed perjury," the motion said.
