Wochit 1:04 mins

James Holmes attorneys said in a court filing that Holmes was in "the throes of a psychotic episode when he committed acts that resulted in the tragic loss of life" at a Colorado-movie-theater-a-year ago After taking less than a week to call 18 witnesses, George Zimmerman's defense attorneys have rested their case in the neighborhood watch volunteer's second-degree murder trial. The case is now expected to be sent to the six jurors. Zimmerman, who never testified, claims that he shot Trayvon Martin, who was unarmed, in self-defense while the teen straddled and punched him. A blase-looking Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty in the Boston Marathon bombing in a seven-minute proceeding that marked his first appearance in public since his capture in mid-April. As survivors of the bombing looked on, the 19 year-old gave a small, lopsided smile to his sisters upon arriving in the courtroom. He appeared to have a jaw injury and there was swelling around his left eye and cheek.
