A union plumber, a schoolteacher and a survivor of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre were among the 19 women and five men chosen as jurors in the death penalty trial of Aurora theater shooter James Holmes.
A jury was seated Tuesday in the death penalty trial of Colorado theater shooter James Holmes after a selection process that experts say was among the largest and most complicated in U.S. history.
After nearly three months of jury selection — and almost three years after the mass shooting — a jury could be seated Tuesday for the death penalty trial of the man charged with killing 12 people and injuring 70 others in a packed suburban Denver movie theater.
The months-long process of selecting a jury in the Colorado theater shooting case is nearing its end, the judge said as the pool of prospective jurors, once numbering 9,000, was reduced to 93 on Monday.
Public spending to investigate and prosecute Colorado theater shooting defendant James Holmes has surpassed $2.2 million, weeks before opening statements in his trial, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.
The process of assembling a jury to try James Holmes in the Colorado theater shooting that left 12 people dead and injured 70 has had moments ranging from the mundane to the surreal.
Jury selection in the Colorado theater shooting trial is continuing with attorneys asking prospective jurors about their views on the death penalty and mental illness.
Questioning of the potential members of the James Holmes jury may be lengthy. They will have to be “death qualified,” to be able to impose the death penalty should the trial get to that point. CBS4’s Alan Gionet asks the Good Question, “What’s it like to be on a jury?”
Jury selection in the Aurora Theater Shooting trial has entered its second phase as attorneys began questioning potential jurors individually.
A prospective juror was released Wednesday from the Colorado theater shooting case after she tearfully told a judge her mother had been murdered and she was wounded five years ago in an unrelated attack.
