Aurora Theater Shooting

James Holmes hearing: Decision delayed about whether key package is privileged

Update: The three-and-a-half hour hearing in the James Holmes/Aurora theater shooting case is over -- with no conclusion on a key issue of whether the prosecutors will have access to a package the suspect sent to his psychiatrist, Dr. Lynne Fenton, who was questioned at length today for the first time in the high-profile case.

The case will reconvene on September 20.
