DENVER (AP) - The judge in the Colorado theater shootings says most of the things defendant James Holmes told investigators about explosives found in his apartment can be used against him, even though he was denied access to an attorney at the time.

Thursday's ruling says Holmes wasn't coerced and spoke voluntarily to the investigators.

What Holmes said hasn't been made public.

The 38-minute interrogation occurred about 14 hours after the shootings as police were trying to figure out how to defuse a web of bombs and triggers in the apartment.

The judge said investigators were justified in questioning Holmes without a defense attorney present because of the threat the explosives posed.

Holmes pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of killing 12 people and injuring 70 in the 2012 attack.
