DENVER (AP) - A psychiatrist at the University of Colorado, Denver, says she met with the suspect in the Colorado movie theater shooting only once, and she believes her doctor-patient relationship with him is limited to that meeting.
Dr. Lynne Fenton testified Thursday in a hearing on whether investigators can have access to a notebook sent to her by James Holmes.
Holmes is accused in the July 20 shooting that left 12 people dead and 58 wounded.
Prosecutors believe the notebook contains descriptions of a violent attack, and argue they should be allowed to review it as part of their investigation.
Defense attorneys say the journal is inadmissible because it's protected by doctor-patient privacy laws.
Judge William B. Sylvester has called a recess to consider a defense request to close the remainder of the hearing.
