Day 19 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, prosecutors are expected to call experts and victims to the stand. 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, Colo., 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

The defense is trying hard to fight the dating websites.
by Abrandt5/27/2015 8:52:42 PM
"Any children hurt" seems to suggest he knew what he was doing.

@7 re the poll. Even though direct and cross back and forth during one exhibit (for lack of a better word) is unconventional, I thought it would be easier for the jury to follow. If the prosecution asks all their questions first, obviously the defense will take copious notes, but will the jury? I think much will be missed.

I found my record, 43 is the tops in objections so far @ 36 now.

This attorney always gets hammered by the defense when he's trying to establish foundation. Getting old!
by Mara Randall5/27/2015 8:53:06 PM
Starting to get heated between PT and DT. Probably going to get much worse.
by Julie5/27/2015 8:53:08 PM

Hi all. I've been watching along when I can, and I'm grateful for a lot of your comments. It's nice to be able to read them back after I miss something. All these bench meetings today are boring, so when I saw that other "lurkers" we're saying hi, so I wanted to as well :)
by Ames5/27/2015 8:58:44 PM
@abrandt...completely agree! Can you imagine if anyone went on a date with him and now know who he is? :(
by Tammy5/27/2015 8:58:51 PM

@Julie, we refer to him as AC.
by NT85/27/2015 9:00:02 PM
It's like the movie "Liar Liar," where Jim Carrey says, "I object on the grounds that the information will be very damaging to my client!"

by Julie5/27/2015 9:02:21 PM
Wow I expected this poll question to be a lot more closer.
by NT85/27/2015 9:02:22 PM
@NT8, why do you call him AC?
by Niki C5/27/2015 9:02:23 PM
NTB. Judge is AC?
by Julie5/27/2015 9:02:24 PM
The gunman's profile read, "Will you visit me in prison?" the Match.com custodian of records testified.
by anica.padilla5/27/2015 9:02:27 PM
@ Julie a few people on here have friends/relatives who were victims, we try to support them as well. It must have been and still be a horrible experience for them all.
