Theater Shooter's Mom Supports Son After Attack

The mother of Colorado theater shooter James Holmes says her family remains supportive of her son, despite the attack that killed 12 people and injured 70 others. Arlene Holmes testified that James Holmes' sister Chris is always wondering how he's doing, despite a relationship that was sometimes contentious when the siblings were growing up.
Arlene Holmes said she has seen her son only three times since the attack because such visits require extra security, but she writes to him about once a week.
She also said she has never known her son to be mean-spirited or selfish.
The jury is considering whether James Holmes should serve life in prison without parole or be executed.
