Judge Carlos Samour ruled Tuesday after accepting a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity from Holmes. He ordered the notebook to be turned over next week.

Media reports have said the notebook contains drawings depicting violence.

Defense lawyers argued psychiatrist Lynne Fenton never received the notebook so prosecutors shouldn’t have access to it.

Prosecutors say police would like to do unspecified “additional processing” on the notebook.
