    CO - James Holmes Trial - *Penalty Phase* #2

    Jury reaches verdict in first phase of James Holmes sentencing trial
    July 23, 2015

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- Jury in the James Holmes Colorado theater shooting trial reached a verdict in the first phase of sentencing on Thursday. Jurors unanimously decided the death penalty can be considered for Holmes and will move on to the next phase of sentencing.

    They said capital punishment is justified because Holmes murdered a large number of victims; caused a grave risk of death to others; committed murder in a heinous, cruel or depraved manner; and laid in wait or ambush.

    One factor jurors said prosecutors did not prove was that Holmes intentionally killed a child, but the other "aggravating factors" ensure that jurors will continue to consider whether he should die for his crimes.

    Jurors unanimously found that prosecutors proved aggravating factors beyond a reasonable doubt, meaning Holmes remains eligible for the death penalty.

    Our legal analyst Chris Decker says counsels may ask #theatershooting judge to tell jury, don't let #LafayetteShooting influence sentencing.

    Almost 3 years after Aurora, CO, the US gets shaken up by another #theatershooting in Lafayette, LA - http://reut.rs/1ImtMpJ




    MOO--I do wonder if the shooter is proud that he is brought up over this recent shooting/murder??? Wonder if this is his claim to fame? (in his own mind)

    Good Morning ALL!!

    I was trying to remember just how many witnesses Def. actually got thru yesterday..They seem to have moved thru them pretty quickly..Course their testimony was pretty narrow as they were from his childhood when he was known as little Jimmy....

    Wonder what he thought of hearing that as he was right back into his "frozen Mode" again...??

    Morning y'all

    Did the DT got all their witnesses in yesterday? What's on the cards for today?
    Don't take yourself so seriously... nobody else does.

    We begin today with heavy hearts, knowing all too well what our counterparts and contemporaries in Louisiana are going through. We wish for them the chance to find some kind of peace or closure soon, and we hope that the world finds some way to put an end to this unacceptable violence 7News

    In Seattle a man that murdered a police officer just got life in prison with no parole.
    They were seeking the death penalty.
    Wonder if the same thing is going to happen here? They used his handicap (he was shot in spine and paralyzed from it---defense did say he only had 10 years left....)

    King says a local reporter tweeted out about that juror's Metalica t-shirt "Frankly, I'm at a loss your honor about what to do about this, if anything" King says Phil Tenser 7news

    If the reporter took a photo of the juror's t-shirt, this is concerning. Should be looked into, IMO
