Centennial, Colo. • A judge in the Colorado theater shooting case has ordered that some of the suspect’s educational records can be released to prosecutors.

Arapahoe County District Court Judge William Sylvester’s ruling requires that confidential information be blacked out.

At a hearing last week, prosecutors argued they needed copies of some 100 pages of educational records subpoenaed from the University of Colorado Denver, where suspect James Holmes was a neuroscience doctoral candidate.

Prosecutors say the documents are needed to build a case that would establish a motive for the July 20 shooting that killed 12 people and injured 58 others.

Attorneys for the state say that Holmes made threats, failed a key exam and had been encouraged by professors to seek another line of work in the weeks prior to the shooting.
