Closing Arguments in Colorado Theater Shooting

The prosecution has begun its closing arguments in the death penalty trial of Colorado theater gunman James Holmes after making some last-minute changes following defense objections to the presentation. Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to killing 12 people and injuring 70 others in the July 2012 shooting at a suburban Denver movie theater. Prosecutors say Holmes carefully planned the attack, and they want jurors to convict him of multiple murder counts. Holmes' attorneys argue he was gripped by a psychotic episode and didn't know right from wrong. If the jury agrees, Holmes would be committed indefinitely to the state mental hospital.
