The man convicted in the 2012 Colorado movie theatre shooting is being spared the death penalty.
On Friday, the jury in the trial for 27-year-old gunman James Homes announced he will serve a life in jail without the possibility of parole for his role in the crime.
His defense team had earlier argued that the neuroscience graduate student was insane at the time. The jury sided with the prosecutors, saying that he was responsible for his actions.
The attack happened on July 20, 2012. Holmes entered a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, armed with an assault rifle, a shotgun and a pistol. Investigators say he threw smoke canisters and shot people who were trying to escape.
He was convicted on 165 counts, including 24 charges of first degree murder.
In order for the death sentence to have passed, the vote by jurors would have had to have been anonymous.
