CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) -- The trial of Colorado theater gunman James Holmes has resumed with testimony about a call made from his cellphone moments before the July 2012 attack.

The testimony Monday morning from Daniel Reed of Verizon Wireless was mostly technical, in contrast to emotional accounts from victims last week.

Defense attorney Katherine Spengler says an 18-second call made from Holmes' phone just before the attack was to a hospital hotline. Cellphone records didn't indicate what, if anything, was said.

Holmes is charged with killing 12 people and injuring 70 others.

His attorneys acknowledge he was the shooter but say schizophrenia distorted his sense of right and wrong. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Prosecutors say Holmes knew what he was doing and should be convicted. They're seeking the death penalty.
