Prosecutors told a crowded courtroom on Wednesday that James Holmes, the shooter who faces trial for the shooting deaths of at least 12 people and injuring at least 58 others in a crowded movie theater, took photos of the theater as he prepared for his deadly spree.

DENVER, CO (Catholic Online) - Photos found on Holmes' cell phone show he scouted the theater in advance of his deadly attack, photographing the interior of the building as well as the locations of back doors and even the hinges on those doors.

Holmes also took pictures of himself posing with weapons and the gear he used in the attack.

The photos suggest that Holmes meticulously planned and premeditated the deadly spree and that it may not have been the outburst of a mentally ill man.

Today was the third and last day of hearing testimony for Holmes.

The judge will make a decision on Friday if there is enough evidence to bring the case to trial.
