Tuesday, July 14, 2015: From where I sat in the Arapahoe County courtroom, I was just 14 feet from James Holmes with a clear view of him. He was unshaven and wearing glasses. Throughout the proceedings I saw he seldom spoke with anyone, not even his attorneys. From time to time he smiled or laughed, seemingly out of touch with what is going on around him.
After closing arguments by both the prosecution and the defense and then a rebuttal by the prosecution the case went to the jury at 6:15 p.m. They will begin deliberations at 9 a.m. this morning.
