Well, well, well…it appears that Fox News’ Jana Winters is now a person of interest in the trial for Aurora shooter James Holmes. Seems that back in July, Winters wrote an article for FoxNews.com on the shooting that contained some pretty confidential information about a notebook Holmes sent a University of Colorado psychiatrist. Holmes’ lawyers are not amused; neither is the judge presiding over the case, who approved efforts to subpoena her for both her sources, as well as all her notes for the piece. As of this point, Fox News has yet to release a statement regarding their stance, or how they plan to handle the conditions that allowed such a leak.
The Denver Post reports:
"Identifying the law enforcement sources who leaked this information to the media is an issue of serious and material importance to the case," Holmes' attorneys wrote this week in a motion seeking a judge's order compelling Winter's appearance.
The Post links to Holmes' motion which states that Winters published information which has "seriously jeopardized" Holmes' right to a fair trial.
