File photo of James Holmes sitting in court for an advisement hearing at the Arapahoe County Justice Center in CentennialBy Keith Coffman CENTENNIAL, Colo., (Reuters) - A journal that Colorado cinema gunman James Holmes wrote before he opened fire inside a packed theater contains his plans to commit a mass killing, interspersed with personal musings and philosophical questions, a document showed on Wednesday. The writings were introduced by prosecutors in the murder trial of the 27-year-old California native and former neuroscience graduate student who is charged with multiple counts of first-degree murder and attempted murder. Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to fatally shooting 12 moviegoers and wounding 70 more in a suburban Denver theater during a screening of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises.” Holmes, who could face the death penalty over the July 2012 rampage, mailed a spiral notebook containing the writings to his psychiatrist a day before he launched his attack on the theater.
