    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.

    James Holmes trial: Death penalty still on the table
    By Sara Weisfeldt, Ana Cabrera and Catherine E. Shoichet, CNN
    Thu July 23, 2015

    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) :thinking:

    Good Morning ALL!! :loveyou:

    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...??

    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....)

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

    King asking court to question the juror. Samour says he was already aware of the t-shirt report Edson says the prosecution has no objection, they were also aware of the shirt Phil Tenser

    Discussing the Metallica T-shirt worn by an alternate juror yesterday. It showed an electric chair. #theatershooting

    a few seconds ago

    "When we saw the shirt yesterday, we looked into it just a little bit from online research. That particular album and that particular song from that album can certainly be interpreted as an anti-capital punishment type of song"

    Judge says he didn't notice anything on his own Judge says they'll bring the juror in, but "my sense is this is someone who apparently likes Metalica" Other juror who wants to talk to the court is 378 Phil Tenser

    Here's the @Metallica image that was on the alternate juror's T-shirt. Attorneys are discussing it. #theatershooting



    Edson says he didn't notice the shirt ever before, but did notice it yesterday

    ok so t-shirt depicts Metallica's second album, Ride the Lighting, which depicts someone being electrocuted in teh chair. One of the songs was written about someone wrongly sentenced to death. Google the image.
