CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Colorado theater shooter James Holmes told a psychiatrist months after the shooting that he was in jail because he "took the blood that wasn't mine to take."
Dr. Rachel Davis testified Monday that Holmes' comment seemed disorganized and she didn't read too much into it. She saw Holmes at a hospital where he was sent in November 2012, about four months after he killed 12 people and wounded 70 during a midnight movie premiere.
Holmes was hospitalized after he fell backward off his jail bunk and ran head first into walls. Davis says he was psychotic.
Prosecutors suggested his statement was a sign he knew right from wrong. Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Davis was among the first witnesses called by his defense team.
