The sole suspect in the Aurora theater shooting will return to court Thursday as his lawyers try to clear the way for him to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.

Lawyers for James Holmes are expected to ask the judge Thursday if Colorado laws on the insanity plea and the death penalty work together to violate his constitutional rights. The defense is looking for answers before Holmes agrees to conditions that he must accept in order to plead insanity.

Holmes' attorneys think that plea is the best way for Holmes to avoid execution.
