ARAPAHOE COUNTY - Attorneys continued to debate over Aurora theater shooting suspect James Holmes' mental state Wednesday morning at the Arapahoe County courthouse.

The focus of the hearing was centered around whether or not Holmes is criminally insane.

The defense however, objects to further evaluation.

If the judge does grant another evaluation, the defense team prefers it to be done by a neutral party, not by an expert brought in by the prosecution.

The judge has asked both sides for a written response to him, which must be done by next month.

The decision regarding another evaluation will be made after those responses have been received.
