DENVER (AP) - Newly filed court records allege that the man accused of opening fire on an Aurora movie theater told a classmate he wanted to kill people four months before the shooting.

Prosecutors made the contention in a motion released Friday. They are seeking access to James Holmes' records from the University of Colorado Denver's neuroscience graduate program. Prosecutors wrote that Holmes left the program in June after also making unspecified threats to a professor that month and failing his year-end final.

Holmes' attorneys argue that prosecutors should have no access to his student records. The papers they filed in response to prosecutors do not address the allegations of threats.

Holmes is charged with killing 12 and wounding 58 during the July 20 attack on a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises."
