James Holmes charged with murder

After jurors rejected his insanity defence, Colorado cinema gunman James Holmes has been found guilty of the first-degree murder of all 12 victims.

The jury found him guilty of killing them with “extreme indifference”.

He was also found guilty on dozens of counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Holmes remained aloof as the verdicts were meticulously read out over the course of an hour.

Following nearly three months of often emotional testimony, the jurors took about 13 hours to reach their decision .

They will return to court on Wednesday to hear further witness testimony to decide whether Holmes will be executed or jailed for life without parole.
