Subpoenas call for documents and testimony about James Holmes' mental health

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Four newly published subpoenas order testimony and records related to the mental health of movie theater shooting defendant James Holmes.

Holmes, who pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to a total of 166 charges, was a patient of a University of Colorado psychiatrist before the shooting and was evaluated at the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo this summer as a result of his plea.

The four subpoenas, which were filed on Sept. 13 but published Monday, call for Holmes' mental health records from both the university and the hospital to be delivered to the court on Sept. 30. They also call for testimony from two people involved in Holmes' evaluation in Pueblo, but the names of those practitioners are blacked out.

Other documents posted Monday include lawyers' responses to various previous motions from both the defense and prosecution. The list included no orders from the judge.
