DENVER – Colorado theater shooter James Holmes has been ordered to pay about $955,000 in restitution to the victims of his 2012 movie theater shooting — money that will never likely be paid by the imprisoned mass killer.
District Court Judge Carlos A. Samour made the order Friday. He presided over Holmes' monthslong trial.
Last August, Samour sentenced Holmes to 12 consecutive life terms without parole plus 3,318 years.
Holmes murdered 12 people and tried to kill 70 more during a midnight showing of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises" in the Denver suburb of Aurora in the summer of 2012.
