Jury seated in Colorado theater shooting trial
Associated Press

A jury has been seated in the death penalty trial of Colorado theater shooter James Holmes. The panel of 12 jurors and 12 alternates was chosen Tuesday after more than two months of jury selection. Opening statements in the case are scheduled for April 27. Holmes is charged with killing 12 people and wounding 70 others in the July 2012 attack on a Denver-area movie theater. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. If the jury finds Holmes was insane, he would be committed indefinitely to the state psychiatric hospital.
