Holmes lawyers want his emails barred as evidence

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) -- Lawyers for Colorado theater shooting defendant James Holmes have added Holmes' emails to the list of evidence they say should not be allowed at his trial.

The defense said Friday the affidavits and court orders used to obtain the emails were so broad they netted emails that merely mentioned Holmes but weren't sent to or from his accounts.

Prosecutors say the requests had to be broad because investigators initially didn't know if Holmes had accomplices.

Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the July 2012 attack.

Prosecutors are looking for any evidence, such as emails, that would undermine Holmes' insanity defense.

Holmes' lawyers are also trying to keep his statements to police from being used as evidence
