Aurora movie theater shooting day 47: Defense to show video of James Holmes in custody
Day 47 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, the defense plans to show video of Holmes in custody. During the course of the trial, prosecutors will argue that Holmes, the admitted gunman, was sane when he went into the midnight premiere of the Dark Knight Rises in an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater and opened fire on the audience, killing 12 and wounding 70. His defense attorneys will try to spare Holmes’ life by arguing that he was insane. 7NEWS and TheDenverChannel.com will have gavel to gavel coverage of the trial starting at 8:15 a.m. (MST) everyday and ending around 5:30 p.m. (MST) Watch new live video on our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/7NewsDenver/live Additional resources:LIVE VIDEO & BLOG: http://bit.ly/theatertrialTIMELINE of the case: http://bit.ly/theatertimelineJURY PROFILE: http://bit.ly/theaterjury CONTINUING COVERAGE: http://bit.ly/theatercoverage

Hope they'll have a verdict by next Friday since Monday will be the 20th!

@Anica...I missed most of yesterday. When will day 46 be available in the archives? Thanks!

I can't listen to this call anymore, it breaks my heart.
by Resa7/10/2015 7:29:51 PM
my hair would be as white as Brauchler's waiting to the 20th though. It's not that far from it now. :-}

god this other 911 call is so hard to listen to as well. RIP veronica moser
by Eric S.7/10/2015 7:30:06 PM
If the jury takes four days to tender a verdict that would make it on (excluding weekend) July 20, 2015.
by CindyL7/10/2015 7:30:08 PM
Brauchler is a lot more soft spoken with the survivors I hadn't noticed that before.
by Della (Me)7/10/2015 7:30:09 PM
Thanks, Everyone, for date correction.. In that case, interesting that in the event of sentencing, DT will not be able to provide witnesses 7/20 - 7/31. All of this occurring around anniversary date has to be especially difficult for survivors, responders . . .
by Mr.D7/10/2015 7:30:14 PM
Did I miss it? I thought the Judge was going to ask JH (in front of the jury) if he wanted to testify...

This kid makes me cry.... Makes my heart hurt
by Hill7/10/2015 7:30:18 PM
Clancy...... I carry a .40. Who knows... I know that police say getting shot at with a weapon can push you back even with a vest on. Tear gas etc. who knows.
by Hill7/10/2015 7:30:21 PM
I think if there was a cop in there with a weapon that may have made a difference but we can't go back sadly.
by Hill7/10/2015 7:30:23 PM
so there is nothing going on in court for the rest of today? No going over the juror instructions?
by jbs7/10/2015 7:30:25 PM
Orman vs Spengler?
by NT87/10/2015 7:30:30 PM
Not sure I'm following what's going on now with reviewing the charges.

Is commenting finished for the day?

Thank you Anica!

I took the photo during Phil's birthday celebration - I love Phil's happy smile!
by anica.padilla7/10/2015 7:46:24 PM
@Lynn that was last night the Judge asked JH about testifying
by LG7/10/2015 7:46:28 PM
Anica, this might me a stupid question but, when the verdict does come in, will you guys put up the live feed? No matter what time it is?
by FMM7/10/2015 7:46:29 PM
@FMM We will break in day or night when the verdict comes in! And we will send breaking news alerts through our app and via email.
by anica.padilla7/10/2015 7:46:49 PM
NT8, I think its because we don't completely know what all is going on since they are not going through these in detail.
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 7:47:12 PM
..............and will you send out an e-mail so we know to tune in?
by FMM7/10/2015 7:49:28 PM
by anica.padilla7/10/2015 7:49:40 PM
Darn wish we could like that photo of Marshall and Phil :)
by LG7/10/2015 7:49:47 PM
So...the Defendant can be found Guilty, Not Guilty or Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity...now you all know why I said the PT had to somewhat tediously prove every element of every offense...otherwise JH could be found straight up Not Guilty for failure of proofs!
by PA Watcher7/10/2015 7:50:00 PM
@anica can you post the link for the app again
by @anica can you post the...7/10/2015 7:50:04 PM
@TG I am fully following all this.
by NT87/10/2015 7:50:07 PM
So what are they doing on Monday again?
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 7:53:49 PM
Didn't mean you weren't, NT8. I meant they weren't reading each instruction in full so our ability to follow along is hampered.
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 7:53:52 PM
It's been a pleasure listening with all of you at D7 and sitting through the trial with all the bloggers. There are so many with a vested interest in this case from all point of view. We bloggers have had the benefit of more information presented to our ears than the jury. My hope is that the jury is able to come to a conclusion that is just and with accordance to the evidence presented to them.
by TLR7/10/2015 7:54:01 PM
I'm confused. Can Holmes be found NOT GUILTY? I didn't even think that option was on the table. If he's found NOT GUILTY, he walks?
by Nadine7/10/2015 7:54:06 PM
@JH the video of the Judge asking him about that is to the left under recent trail coverage
by LG7/10/2015 7:54:07 PM
Nadine, I believe if he is found not guilty, he goes to a mental hospital.
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 7:56:24 PM
@Nadine...that's what they just said, Guilty, Not Guilty or NGBRI...and, yes, if Not Guilty he walks
by PA Watcher7/10/2015 7:56:25 PM
judge is working hard on friday!
by yolo7/10/2015 7:56:27 PM
@TG I have a memory of all these objections that were done early on, Samour is just giving each side a second chance to Sway his previous rulings.
by NT87/10/2015 7:56:31 PM
And, yes, I know it makes no sense as he has admitted to the shootings...must be some sort of quirk in CO law or a misstatement by the Court
by PA Watcher7/10/2015 7:56:34 PM
Sure wish some legal mind could explain what has been added in, stipulated or taking out.
by Tammy Garrison7/10/2015 7:59:13 PM
@Tammy if he is found NGBRI he goes to a mental hospital...if he is found Not Guilty he goes free
by PA Watcher7/10/2015 7:59:15 PM
PA Watcher, he walks, or he goes to a mental hospital?
