    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.

    Back on the record with Brett Mills, Expert Witness from FBI Crime Lab Quantico regarding ballistics.

    I am listening, while reading about other current cases (the DC Murder/Arson is fascinating...and has new info)

    But I just can't follow and transcribe this witness. Too technical. I am listening though and if something jumps out at me as important, I will do my best.

    So far, I have heard 270 impact points.

    @larryryckman: Mills says investigators plot the impacts and the trajectories. They placed trajectory rods, pink and yellow

    @larryryckman: Mills: There were more holes in the theater than they could stick rods into. Depended on type of material, size of hole.

    @larryryckman: Mills: Wood is very good to plot a bullet trajectory. He used engineering flags to plot shotgun pellets. #theatershooting

    I wonder if she would object as much if she actually had to stand right up to do it!

    @larryryckman: In some cases, bullets changed direction after hitting objects in #theatershooting . Bullets could have richoted off of bone, wallets, keys.
