A judge has accepted James Holmes' plea of not guilty by reason of insanity - as the Colorado theater shooting suspect smirked and yawned his way through the hearing.
Holmes, who allegedly killed 12 theater goers and injured 70 more as they watched The Dark Knight Rises last July, looked indifferent as he followed the ground rules of the plea in court on Tuesday.
After Judge Carlos Samour Jr. read through the 18 points and asked Holmes if he had any questions, Holmes answered 'no' in a clear, firm voice.
Samour then accepted the plea, setting the stage for a lengthy mental evaluation of Holmes.
