Dozens of people from across Colorado and the country gathered on Monday night for a vigil to honor those killed in the theater shooting three years ago.
Nearly three years have passed since James Holmes, wearing body armor, opened fire in a deadly attack at a packed Colorado movie theater, and survivors and relatives of the 12 moviegoers who died are still trying to make sense of the shooting.
The judge in the Colorado theater shootings has rejected arguments by defense lawyers that state laws on insanity and the death penalty violate the Constitution.
Colorado taxpayers have spent about $1,900 in travel costs for a New York-based reporter to appear in an Arapahoe County courtroom as lawyers for theater shooting suspect James Holmes attempt to identify her confidential sources, the reporter’s attorney said.
A psychiatrist who treated James Holmes told campus police a month before the Colorado theater attack that Holmes had homicidal thoughts and was a danger to the public, according to documents released Thursday.
