CENTENNIAL, Colo. Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of Colorado theater shooter James Holmes.
The panel made its decision Thursday after deliberating for a day and a half. A court spokesman saID the verdict will be read at 5:15 p.m. today.
Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the July 20, 2012, shootings that killed 12 people and injured 70 others.
If the jury convicts Holmes, the trial will enter a sentencing phase with testimony about whether he should be sent to prison for life or sentenced to death. Jurors make that decision.
If they find him not guilty, he would be committed indefinitely to a state mental hospital.
Jurors heard nearly three months of testimony, including heartbreaking and sometimes gruesome survival stories.
Hanged by the neck until dead.
Colorado...life in prison or can convince the rulers he is really sorry..
Anyone have a live link?
Found it, I think.
Good work Dacula!
Apparantly it will be 6:15 EDT...
Another one for God to sort out, because America no longer has justice.
Dear God, please destroy America, and rebuild her with your remnant.
The live news link isn’t reporting anything. It’s from Iowa...not colorado
guilty of murder in the first degree.
Guilty. Kill the SOB.
Still reading murder and assault charges - now up to count 26. All counts so far are guilty.
Memo to Arapahoe County court: Please do NOT jerk around for 20 years dealing with stupid appeals from this creep.
I’d love to see them drag the little sonofabitch outside the courthouse right now and put a bullet in his head.

Still reading, count 40, attempted murder in first degree, guilty.
We most definitely have the death penalty in colorado
When the judge read counts 13-24, he said “no extreme indifference”. Does that mean the perp had no sense of right and wrong and is insane?
Didn't connect the link until Count 26 so didn't hear that and don't know what it means.
Up to Count 77, still reading guilty verdicts attempted murder in first degree.
165 counts, still many to be read.
I didn’t catch it from the very beginning, so don’t know what part B and C are.
Judge seated everybody.
