CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The latest in the Colorado theater shooting trial (all times local):
Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of Colorado theater shooter James Holmes.
The panel made its decision Thursday after deliberating for a day and a half. A court spokesman says the verdict will be read at 4:15 p.m. MDT Thursday.
Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the July 20, 2012, shootings that killed 12 people and injured 70 others.
If the jury convicts Holmes, the trial will enter a sentencing phase with testimony about whether he should be sent to prison for life or sentenced to death. Jurors make that decision.
If they find him not guilty, he would be committed indefinitely to a state mental hospital.
Jurors heard nearly three months of testimony, including heartbreaking and sometimes gruesome survival stories.
