CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) -- Attorneys for the Colorado movie theater shooting suspect plan to subpoena a journalist who was the first to report that James Holmes sent his psychiatrist a notebook full of violent descriptions.

The attorneys made the statement toward the end of a court hearing Monday after nine different law enforcement officials denied being the ones to tell reporter Jana Winter about the notebook. The defense argues the disclosure was a violation of a gag order in the case and is seeking sanctions against the leaker.

After authorities seized a package from Holmes in the mailroom of the University of Colorado, Winter reported that it contained a notebook with violent descriptions of a possible attack.

Winter did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
