Holmes lawyers accuse prosecutors of interfering

DENVER — Lawyers for Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes made serious allegations against prosecutors today, accusing them of interfering with the defense investigation and of waiting nearly a year to turn over evidence.

Defense lawyers alleged that prosecutors and law-enforcement officers have told witnesses that if they spoke to the defense team, their words would be manipulated or their meanings twisted.

The defense also implied that prosecutors had urged witnesses not to speak to the defense and asked witnesses to “surreptitiously report back to law enforcement” on any discussions they have with the defense team.

Prosecutors didn’t immediately file a response, and a spokeswoman declined to comment, citing a gag order in the case.
