Holmes to plead not guilty by reason of insanity

(WFLX) - James Holmes is expected to change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity. He's the man accused of killing 12 people and injuring several others in a Colorado movie theater.

If the plea is accepted, Holmes would be sent to the state mental hospital where doctors would determine whether he was insane at the time of the July 20 shootings.

If convicted, Holmes could be sentenced to death.
