Reporter in Colo shootings seeks delay in hearing

DENVER (AP) - A New York-based reporter wants to delay a Colorado court hearing where she's been ordered to testify about her confidential sources for a story on the Colorado theater shooting suspect.

A lawyer for Jana Winter of Fox News asked a Colorado judge to delay the April 1 hearing while Winter asks a New York state court to overturn the order for her to appear.

Winter's request was made public Tuesday. The judge hasn't said when he'll rule.

Winter reported that suspect James Holmes sent a psychiatrist a notebook foreshadowing the July 20 attack, which killed 12 and injured 70. She quoted unnamed officials.

Holmes' lawyers say the leak violated a gag order. They want to know who was responsible.

Winter's lawyer says New York law allows her to keep her sources confidential.
