Months ago, we told you the supremely disturbed suspect entered a "not guilty" plea — perhaps in hope of escaping the death penalty — but now James' and his legal team are attempting to modify their defense.
James now plans to change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity!
And it's looks like the judge might let him do it!

WHAAAT??? Courtroom wiretapping? Guess this is how TMZ does it…
Well, maybe. A new lawsuit has been filed by Alpha Walker — a man who on May 16th, 2012 was accused of attempting to extort Stevie Wonder — in California federal court alleging that TMZ has been placing hidden microphones in courtrooms.
