    Prosecutors have started to paint a picture of what drove James Holmes to allegedly shoot and kill 12 people and wound another 58 at a Colorado theater last month. According to them, the once-promising neuroscience student let his academic work slip near the end of his first year of his University of Colorado doctoral candidacy.

Prosecutors have asked a judge to subpoena the school's records, saying the details of Holmes’s life are “extremely relevant” to the case.
