ARAPAHOE COUNTY - A police crime lab computer expert said he found browser history for websites about ammo and weapons on an iPhone thought to belong to Aurora theater shooter James Holmes.

The iPhone also had what Aurora Police Detective Michael Leiker described as "movie theater artifacts" and at least 12 photos.
The photos were briefly discussed during a motions hearing Thursday but were not shown to people in the courtroom gallery.
The words "rational insanity" were found in search history on a computer thought to belong to the theater shooter.
On another computer, detectives found an image of someone wearing a gas mask.
The theater shooter's defense team is seeking to stop prosecutors from using expert testimony about forensic data found on the shooter's suspected electronic devices.
Detectives searched at least three computers, an iPhone, iPod Touch, tablet PC and thumb drives thought to belong to the shooter. An iPhone 4S that belonged to someone else was also searched. That person was not identified Thursday in court.
Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the July 2012 theater shooting.
The theater shooter appeared more engaged at the beginning of the hearing when he talked privately with his attorneys. He then stared ahead as he swiveled slightly in his chair.
The afternoon hearing on Thursday dealt with a red-light ticket the shooter received 10 days before the killings. A judge has not ruled on whether a jury will get to see the still photo or video of the alleged infraction.
The prosecution says it speaks to his mental state days before the killings. The defense says it would cast their client in an unfavorable light for a previous wrong-doing that doesn't have anything to do with the killings.
