(AP) The superintendent of Colorado's state mental hospital says a psychiatrist and probably two other experts will conduct the sanity evaluation of movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes.

In a letter made public Tuesday, the chief of the Colorado Mental Health Institute said a psychologist and neuropsychologist likely will participate.

None were identified by name.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in a suburban Denver theater in July. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to multiple counts of murder and attempted murder.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Holmes must undergo the sanity evaluation before his trial, which is scheduled for February.

The hospital chief also objected to a request by Holmes' lawyers to be present during the evaluation.
