CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - Attorneys in the Colorado theater massacre returned to court for a hearing on whether testimony on fingerprint comparison should be allowed at the trial.

An FBI agent testified at Monday's hearing, which is one of the last scheduled before James Holmes goes on trial in December on multiple charges of murder and attempted murder. Schedule changes have been common, however.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the 2012 shootings, which left 12 dead and 58 injured. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Before the hearing, the judge rejected a defense effort to gain unspecified University of Colorado records for a potential trial witness. The nature of the records and the identity of the witness haven't been released.

Argument had been scheduled on that matter.
