When the trial began in January, some 9,000 potential jurors were summoned, and jury selection was expected then to continue until May or June, when the trial would finally start.

The jury selection process, however, appears to be moving faster than expected, according to court spokesman Rob McCallum.

After years delay, theater shooting trial starts Monday

Trevor Hughes, USA TODAY   12:28 p.m. EDT April 24, 2015

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Nearly three years after police arrested James Holmes outside a suburban Denver movie theater where he shot and killed 12 people, prosecutors are set to lay out why they believe jurors should order his execution.

Opening arguments begin Monday afternoon in the slow-moving case against Holmes, who is also accused of injuring about 70 others as he rampaged through the movie theater during a midnight showing of The Dark Night Returns. Holmes, a former neuroscience graduate student, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, and defense lawyers argue he was in the grips of a psychotic episode when he entered the theater and opened fire.

Prosecutors are expected to argue that Holmes planned and prepared for weeks if not months, accumulating ammunition, practicing with his weapons, and building explosives that he used to booby-trap his apartment.

Exactly what evidence and arguments will be made have remained largely a secret thanks to a gag order dropped on the case within hours of Holmes' arrest. Under Colorado law, the same 12-member jury that will decide Holmes' guilt or innocence also will decide whether he should be executed if he's convicted.

Colo. theater shooter James Holmes’ trial to start Monday, as gun debate dwindles

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS / Saturday, April 25, 2015, 12:48 PM

DENVER — The trial of Colorado movie theater shooter James Holmes is scheduled to begin Monday, as the state’s gun debate has quieted down.

When Holmes opened fire inside a packed movie theater in July 2012, killing 12 and injuring 70, it did more than spread fear and heartbreak across the Denver suburbs. It helped revive the national debate over gun control.

That argument gained intensity in the state five months later when a gunman killed 20 children and 6 adults at Newtown Elementary School in Connecticut.

Democrats in the state legislature in 2013 muscled through new laws requiring universal background checks and banning magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.

James Holmes, who killed 12 at 'The Dark Knight Rises' showing, grew violent, prosecutors say

April 26, 2015 11:11 AM
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


CENTENNIAL, Colo. - James Holmes was growing volatile well before he put on a gas mask and body armor, strapped on a rifle, shotgun, pistol and ammunition, and slipped into a midnight premiere of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises."

He was a sought-after neuroscientist-in-training, but he was falling apart. He told a classmate he wanted to kill people, prosecutors say. He fell out of favor with his professors, who suggested he find a new career. He stopped seeing his psychiatrist, then sent her text messages so threatening that she alerted University of Colorado campus police. He even mailed her his journal, in a package with burned $20 bills.

Months before Holmes opened fire on the audience on July 20, 2012, killing 12 and injuring 70 more in one of America's deadliest mass shootings, the 24-year-old doctoral student was preparing for violence.
