Reporter in Aurora shootings fights order to testify

(AP) - A Fox News reporter in New York is appealing a judge's order to appear in a Colorado court to identify her sources for a story about a notebook that movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes sent a psychiatrist before the killings.

Reporter Jana Winter's attorney says appeal documents are being filed Monday. The attorney says Winter will also seek a stay blocking the judge's order that she testify in Colorado on April 1.

Winter reported that before the July 20 assault that killed 12 people and injured 70, suspect James Holmes sent a psychiatrist a notebook containing drawings that foreshadowed the attack. The story quoted unidentified law-enforcement officials.

Holmes' lawyers say the leak violated a gag order in the case. They want Winter's sources to be identified and punished.
