Aurora Movie Shooting
Even though we are only a few days in, it is clear that the Aurora Theater Trial is going to affect the Colorado community in deep and profound ways that we are just beginning to understand.
Katie Medley, nine months pregnant and crouching between the seats of a movie theater filling with tear gas, gunfire and screams, looked at her husband Caleb’s bloody face and told a friend, “He’s dead, he’s dead.”
Katie Medley, the first witness to testify in the Colorado theater shooting trial, said she thought her husband was dead after he was shot in the head but then noticed he was breathing.
Testimony starts Tuesday, the second day of the long-awaited trial of Colorado theater shooter James Holmes
After nearly three years of mystery, a clearer but conflicted portrait of James Holmes emerged from the first few hours of his trial in the Colorado theater shootings.
Opening arguments in the Colorado theater shooting trial revealed a torrent of new details about James Holmes and the 2012 attack that killed 12 and injured 70.
Opening statements ended Monday evening in the trial of the man who opened fire inside the movie theater in Aurora. Both sides focused the jury on the key point of whether James Holmes was sane when he killed 12 people and injured 70 others.
Two versions of the unstable mind of James Holmes were presented to a jury as lawyers revealed many more details about his conversion from a promising grad student to a gunman capable of opening fire on hundreds of unsuspecting moviegoers.
A prosecutor declared Monday that two psychiatric exams found Colorado theater gunman James Holmes to be sane as he meticulously plotted a mass murder, considering a bomb or biological warfare before settling on a shooting.
James Holmes’ defense attorney, Daniel King, says his client “now regrets what took place in the theater.”
