By now you know the verdict. James Holmes was found guilty of murder in the deaths of twelve people who he opened fire on inside the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora on July 20, 2012. Many more were injured. The jury deliberated for two days before handing their decision over to Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour Jr., who read it at around 4:15 p.m. Holmes's defense attorneys had argued that he should be found not guilty by reason of insanity.
