TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Capital murder suspect James Calvert now has the laptop he has requested for use in preparing for his trial. Calvert is awaiting trial after police say he shot and killed his wife before fleeing the scene with the couple's 4-year-old son.

A notebook computer was given to the court for Calvert to use to analyze and prepare documents for his trial later this year. Calvert intends to represent himself in the trial.

Evidence he will be provided includes 4,666 pages of documents, 1,785 photographs, 16 hours of video, 10 hours of audio and a 360 degree view of the crime scene.

Also in court, it was revealed what was found on Calvert's own computer taken in a search warrant.

District Attorney Matt Bingham: "Are there images of pornography?"

Computer Expert Tim McLemee: "Are there on his, right now? Yes there are."

McLemee continued, "For example the one file I looked in one single file named 'Girls' and inside that one file contained - over 2,000 images in one file."

Prosecutors argued Calvert would be receiving a 'forensic copy' of the devices from McLemee, their computer expert.

James Calvert: "So it's not a true 1:1 copy? I can't take what you give me and put it into a computer and access it just as I would with that source hard drive correct?"

Tim McLemee: "No, I disagree. Again our terminology --- since we come from two different computer fields --- you have the greatest forensically sound image known to man."

The Smith County Sheriff's Office said Calvert will be able to use the laptop in his cell without any extra security being added to the jail.

Calvert's trial is scheduled for October 2014.
