Aurora Theater Shooting: First Evaluation Almost Certainly Finds Suspect Insane ( James Holmes )

Yesterday, Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour ordered a new sanity evaluation for the Aurora theater shooter. In a lengthy (and heavily redacted) ruling, Judge Samour found that the suspect's initial sanity evaluation was inadequate.

 The judge also refused to appoint one of the prosecution's experts as the new evaluator. Rather, the judge ordered the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo (one of Colorado's two state mental health hospitals) to appoint a new, independent evaluator.

The Institute has until March 10, 2014 to appoint the evaluator, and the new evaluation report is due to the court in July of 2014.
