CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Newly unsealed court records show that police found lots of beer, a Batman mask and drugs used to treat depression and anxiety in James Holmes' apartment after the Colorado theater shooting.

The records released Thursday show that police found more than 50 cans and bottles of beer, a Batman mask, paper shooting targets and the medication in the apartment in Aurora. Police detailed more than 100 items found there.

Authorities searched the apartment after disarming booby-traps Holmes allegedly left there.

Holmes faces the death penalty if convicted of killing 12 people during the attack. His attorneys have said he was mentally ill.
