Judge: Good cause for insanity plea in Aurora shootings


A judge said Monday there is good cause to let Colorado movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.

But Judge Carlos Samour Jr. said he will not rule until other matters are resolved, possibly later this month.

Previously, a judge entered a standard plea of not guilty for Holmes, who faces charges in the July 20, 2012, shooting spree in Aurora that took the lives of 12 people and wounded dozens more at the premiere of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises."
