James Holmes, the guy who killed 12 people and wounded 70 others at a Colorado movie theater in 2012, has just been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Last month, Holmes was convicted on all 24 counts of first-degree murder, which carries a death sentence under Colorado law. His lawyers had tried unsuccessfully to convince the court that he was mentally ill at the time he committed the crime, but today managed to persuade the judge to remove the death penalty.
As ENTmania! previously reported, Holmes was arrested in July 10, 2012 after opening fire on movie watchers in the Aurora theater, which was screening The Dark Night Rises at that time. He attempted suicide in jail four months later, which was thwarted by police.
