Colorado theater rampage suspect called mentally ill

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Lawyers for Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes formally told a judge on Monday he wants to change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity after outside experts diagnosed his mental illness.

The attorneys, however, did not specify the diagnosis. Judge Carlos Samour Jr. indicated he would not decide whether to approve the new plea until the end of the month.
