CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) – A Colorado judge will formally sentence convicted theater shooter James Holmes on Wednesday.
Holmes was found guilty of killing 12 people and wounding dozens more. One of the victims include Springfield native Matt McQuinn. His mother read a victim impact statement during the sentencing phase of the trial.
By law, Holmes will be sentenced to life without parole because a jury couldn’t agree on the death penalty.
Still, he could be sentenced to up to 3,318 additional years on attempted murder convictions.
