CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- A debate is underway over evidence in the trial of James Holmes. Defense Attorneys asked the judge to prevent jurors from seeing the graphic images from inside the Aurora theater.

Prosecutors say the "horrific pictures" are necessary to show exactly what the shooter did.

But the defense argues that his actions are not in question and the images are inflammatory. They will cause jurors to be swayed by emotion rather than evidence.

The jurors will be deciding whether he was insane when he killed 12 people and injured dozens more in July 2012.

Prosecutors say their evidence in the case will take 400 square feet of storage. They told the judge they'll be ready to start presenting evidence in May.

The judge plans to jell potential jurors that. He'll also tell them they need to be prepared for trial to last around five months.
