| No Comments

A University of Colorado psychiatrist told police that her patient James Holmes had homicidal thoughts and was a public danger prior to movie theater shootings, according to records unsealed Thursday news sources reported.

Dr. Lynne Fenton told police that Holmes had stopped seeing her and that he had been threatening her through text messages and e-mails 38 days before the shooting, the Denver Post reported.

In response Holmes had his key card deactivated so he could not access secure areas of University of Colorado medical buildings, Denver Post reported.

In addition to the Fenton's affidavit, 13 other documents have been released relating to Holme's trial, USA Today reported.

Holme is on trial for killing 12 and injuring 70 during the midnight premiere of Dark Knight Rises, USA Today reported.
