Colorado Cinema Massacre Trial to Hear Closing Arguments

Lawyers in the trial of Colorado movie massacre gunman James Holmes will make their closing arguments on Tuesday to jurors who must decide whether he is a calculating mass murderer or was legally insane when he killed 12 people.
Prosecutors and the defense have been allotted two hours each to present their case by Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour, after testimony in the almost three-month-long capital trial ended last week.
It is the last time attorneys will address the jury before the panel begins deliberating the fate of the 27-year-old California native on Wednesday.
Holmes faces 165 counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder and explosive charges stemming from the July 20, 2012 rampage inside a midnight screening of a Batman movie at a multiplex in the Denver suburb of Aurora.
