The man suspected of shooting a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado during the premier of The Dark Knight Rises has ditched his red-orange Joker-style haircut for a more conservative, buzzed cut.

James Holmes was more animated in court Thursday during his hearing than in the past, as he looked around the room flashing a smile.

Holmes was seen moving his mouth, but did not appear to be actually talking.

Prosecutors have stopped pursuing having a notebook Holmes delivered to psychiatrist Dr. Lynne Fenton containing plans of the attack, as defense attorneys say Holmes is mentally ill, and the notebook should not be released due to doctor-patient privilege.

“We still think we have good and compelling evidence that the notebook should not be privileged,” said Deputy District Attorney Rich Orman said, despite adding that because of possible delays, “we’re not asking to look at it.”

There has been some backlash from this decision, however.

“His notebook, his sketches, his drawings, everything should be made public so we can learn from it and prevent this from happening again,” said Greg Medek, whose 23-year-old daughter Micayla died in the shooting. “He’s just putting on a show. I don’t think he’s crazy. He’s just evil.”

Holmes has been charged with 142 counts, including murder and attempted murder, stemming from the July 20th attack at an Aurora theatre that killed 12 and wounded 58 others.
