The jury has reached a verdict in the Colorado Movie Massacre trial against James Holmes……Guilty!
From NBC News:
On the 51st day of the trial, the nine-woman, three-man jury reached its decision after only 13 hours of deliberation on 24 counts of murder, 140 counts of attempted murder and an explosives count in the shootings at a screening of “Batman: The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, near Denver, on July 20, 2012.
Holmes, 27, a former doctoral student in neuroscience at the University of Colorado-Denver, pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity — never denying that he carried out the bloody rampage.
A court spokesman said it would take about an hour to announce the verdicts on all 165 charges, which include separate counts of first-degree murder with intent and first-degree murder with extreme difference for each of the victims: Jonathan Blunk, Alexander Boik, Jesse Childress, Gordon Cowden, Jessica Ghawi, John Thomas Larimer, Matthew McQuinn, Micayla Medek, Veronica Moser-Sullivan, Alex Sullivan, Alexander Teves and Rebecca Ann Wingo
So far he’s recieved 13 guilty verdices out of the 165. All that was needed was one to insure that he was sentenced to jail instead of a mental institution. James stood there with his hands in his pockets and a resigned “FuQ it” look on his face. Like when that old guy went to visit Michael Meyers at the mental institution. This dude still creeps me out. I haven’t seen one look of remorse, but I’m sure he doesn’t even remember doing it. #TheMonarchs
