Accused Colorado gunman James Holmes had conversations with a classmate about wanting to kill people in March, 2012, four months before a deadly rampage that left 12 people dead and 58 others wounded 58, a court document showed today.

The document also said that Holmes was denied access to the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, where he was a Ph.D. student, after making threats to a professor.
