    Jury selection to begin in trial of James Holmes in Colorado theater massacre

    It will have been 914 days since authorities say Holmes burst into a packed suburban movie theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora, tossed a tear gas canister into the crowd and opened fire. The first panicked 911 call came at 12:38 a.m. on July 20, 2012.

    The gunshots came less than a second apart, round after round, until 12 people were dead and more than 70 others injured, some permanently, in the barrage of shotgun and semiautomatic gunfire let loose during a screening of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight

    snip

    The Holmes trial is expected to last much of 2015; jury selection could take until late spring. And should the death sentence be imposed upon Holmes, now 27, legal experts predict two decades of appeals.

    A staggering 9,000 summons were mailed to prospective jurors in Arapahoe County. It is a net so wide that in a county with about 500,000 eligible jurors, nearly 1 in 50 residents could receive notices.

    But first a jury must be seated.

    Theater shooter's defense team to rest this week
    July 5, 2015

    The defense has yet to call Dr. Raquel Gur, an expert in schizophrenia who is expected to testify that shooter James Holmes was insane at the time of the 2012 mass shooting that left 12 dead and 70 wounded.

    Oh, yes, Maisiebelle, I feel sure he's chompin' at the bit to "speak" with her, and I would imagine the DT has let her know how thorough he is, etc. It'll be good -- no doubt. It's their last chance at the verdict they want, so the DT is prolly on pins & needles. Are they confident?? One wonders....

    Here is a really good article about the family of Holmes.

    ...But more than two months into his mass-murder trial, James Holmes has yet to turn around in his seat and acknowledge them.....
    Two years later, Holmes said he didn't care if got the death penalty but would probably fight it for his parents' sake.

    "They would miss me," he said. (Oh ya sure, he does not want to die. Two words... "body armor" he wants to live alright.)

    don't believe him at all----he doesn't want to die--he is also very very afraid of pain/hurting himself
