James Holmes will learn his punishment for 141 other crimes tied to this case in a hearing that begins Monday; these crimes include the charges for explosives planted in his apartment.Victims, families and the gunman will have another chance to address the court, similar to the other sentencing phase. The key difference is that there will be no jury in this hearing and the sentencing decisions will all be made by the judge.
It is very cowardly of Brady to not be present for this...bet she'll be present to collect her blood money.

Everyone has been hinting on and saying he hasnt said sorry. I wouldnt ever be able to listen to him say it and honestly believe he means it. It would be nothing more than a recommendation from his lawyers after hearing the constant mention of that. Basically a "say sorry, that'll shut them up"

@JW she has NO respect and no class is why
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:34:14 PM
can someone send a brief on Teves for us who missed it?
by Prism8/25/2015 3:35:07 PM
The murderer seems disconnected from his feelings, conscience, and his crimes. I hope his family can reach him with a confrontation of his actions when no one is watching or caring. Just between them and their son and her brother. He does not need to be comforted in anything until after he goes to God for forgiveness.
by Cindy L8/25/2015 3:35:31 PM
Wow...this is an incredible story...
by Kels8/25/2015 3:36:13 PM
There are truly people on this earth who have absolutely no conscience. jh is one of them but I would include King and the rest of his pack.
by JW8/25/2015 3:36:14 PM
Can anyone tell me how I can watch yesterday's proceedings on youtube or elsewhere? Thanks!
by nycgirl8/25/2015 3:36:20 PM
Wonder what JH parents think about all of the impact systems
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:36:22 PM
@Prism and others, do a youtube search for "Croaker Queen". She posts daily updates from the trial. I think teeves is "Day 65 part 2"
by Loz8/25/2015 3:36:26 PM
You can go to Youtube and find all of yesterday's sessions.
by Mandy L8/25/2015 3:37:09 PM
she also has the video (~38 minutes) of the different angle from the camera near the jury box
by Loz8/25/2015 3:37:14 PM
@JW well written. I totally agree
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:38:31 PM
@Loz: It would appear that account is posting copyrighted content that they did not pay for. How about using our archive link, which also has everything:
Video archive of full days of testimony in the trial of James Holmes for the Aurora movie theater shooting.

Chantel Blunk couldn't attend, so they just showed family photos in court
by Phil Tenser8/25/2015 3:40:34 PM
JH not even looking at the pictures
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:40:47 PM
There also is a screen by the jury box.
by JG8/25/2015 3:42:32 PM
They are so brave to tell their impact stories. My heart goes out to all of them and their families.
by Kristle8/25/2015 3:42:59 PM
I'm not sure if the article was posted, but I found it yesterday. Very touching. www.denverpost.com
by Kels8/25/2015 3:43:48 PM
Why so many police in the court room?
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:45:05 PM
Anyone else notice that King has a look of surprise every time LTM calls another witness for a statement?
by Victoria8/25/2015 3:45:16 PM
Even though there IS another screen in the courtroom, JH has been looking up at the screen the whole trial. Idk why he isn't doing it now....I'm sure he's looking at the other screen but isn't looking UP...just pray he's listening and haunted by their words.
by Kristle8/25/2015 3:45:35 PM
There are so many police because the families probably want to kick his ***..
by nic8/25/2015 3:45:43 PM
@nic so true
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:46:30 PM
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:47:32 PM
A legal question. Are there victim impact statements after every murder trial? Or just death penalty murder trials?
by Nadine8/25/2015 3:49:26 PM
I don't think I would be able to speak about my son if he was murdered. I would try but tell the attorney to be on stand-by to read my words.....
by Kristle8/25/2015 3:49:30 PM
King and crew should be ashamed.... I know everyone deserves a fair trial but Come On!
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:50:34 PM
@Nadine: After any crime with a victim those victims get to make a statement before the judge assigns a sentence
by Phil Tenser8/25/2015 3:50:54 PM
these go to the judge for his sentencing on the other 141 charges against JH.... in additional to the jury decided LWOP for the 12 murders
by mandi8/25/2015 3:51:58 PM
PTSD is the norm now for these poor people...
by Kristle8/25/2015 3:52:06 PM
Could he get the DP on any of the other 141 charges?
by Tjq8/25/2015 3:53:46 PM
I want to catch the next plane to Colorado and throw my arms around these people and tell them that I stand with them.
by nycgirl8/25/2015 3:53:57 PM
This must be really hard for the attorneys to read the statements without crying.
by Kristle8/25/2015 3:55:41 PM
@Tjq, I highly doubt anyone can get the DP on attempted murder and an explosives count, but I could be wrong!
by Kels8/25/2015 3:57:08 PM
John Larimer was her youngest child, I think....
by Kristle8/25/2015 3:57:43 PM
The sad thing is that most if not all want to shun comfort from strangers and that such focus is severely discomforting. But the desire to comfort others is a very good thing. Yet the victims and/or their families just want to disappear into the background.
by Cindy L8/25/2015 3:58:22 PM
Sometimes I think in order to be a defense attorney, you cannot have a conscience or a heart. None of this DT has shown any empathy, except to the defendant when his parents were testifying. This is just wrong.
by Nadine8/25/2015 3:58:28 PM
DT's Ms. Nelson is crying....
by Kristle8/25/2015 3:59:34 PM
I understand why many people are upset about the jury decision for life without parole; but, I want everyone to think about the importance of avoiding the chance for a reversal of the decision if it was to have been death and been allowed to have an appeal. Having life without parole negates any future defense court appeals.
by Eleanora Bradford8/25/2015 4:00:01 PM
Nadine - The fact that all of the dt's empathy is directed to that monster speaks volumes about who those people are.
by JW8/25/2015 4:00:14 PM
Wonder if Ms. Nelson identifies with Mrs. Larimer in some way.
by Kristle8/25/2015 4:01:04 PM
wow, thats the only person whose ever given dt credit
by JG8/25/2015 4:02:29 PM
the saddest part of all this is that the trial suspended and continues to ****** the healing; tragedy is as possible as joy in life; re-balancing is critical; regarding comments on JH, elevate your understanding of mental illness--he is human, too
by Prism8/25/2015 4:03:38 PM
wish they wouldnt cut out so fast so we could see that scum in cuffs
