The latest in closing arguments in the Colorado theater shooting case (all times local):

9:50 a.m.

The judge in the Colorado theater shooting trial is instructing jurors on how they should deliberate the fate of gunman James Holmes in advance of closing arguments.

Judge Carlos A. Samour is expected to take about an hour to go over the directions Tuesday in the court in suburban Denver.

After that, prosecutors and then Holmes' lawyers will get their final chance to tell jurors about whether Holmes should be found guilty of multiple counts of murder, or not guilty by reason of insanity. The attack nearly three years ago killed 12 people and injured 70 others.

Deliberations aren't expected to start until Wednesday.
