James Holmes' attorneys seek video of him receiving psychiatric care at hospital

DENVER - Attorneys for Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes want a judge to order that they be given a videotape of Holmes undergoing psychiatric care at a hospital.

Holmes' attorneys filed a motion Tuesday seeking to compel the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office to provide the video.

According to a previously released court document, Holmes was taken from jail to the psychiatric ward of Denver Health Medical Center in November because he was considered a danger to himself.

Holmes' attorneys say a state doctor who will evaluate Holmes' mental health has said he wants to view the video.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to more than 160 counts of murder and attempted murder in the July 20 theater shooting.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
