Colorado District Attorney Carol Chambers Speaks On The Trial! Death Penalty A Possibility For James Holmes

'Suspected' Dark Knight gunman James Holmes' first court appearance ended minutes ago, and we learned he will most likely be charged with first degree murder for killing 12, which could potentially lead to the death penalty.

Colorado District Attorney Carol Chambers shares insight into the future of the case, and in a post-hearing press conference informed viewers how:

"Victims' families will be consulted before a decision is made on seeking the death penalty for Holmes… That decision is months away."

Chambers shared how showing extreme indifference towards his own actions could lead in to the charge of first degree murder.

Chambers also declined to comment on whether Holmes' family was cooperating with the investigation, which she stated is still very much "active and ongoing."

Holmes was initially arrested on probable cause determination, and after an overview of evidence, the court has enough to keep Holmes in custody. He is currently being held in isolation, under special protection without bond, which officials will continue to enforce.

After viewing James during his court appearance, his strange, unfocused and erratic eye movements caused speculation as to whether he was medicated, which Chambers couldn't confirm or deny.

Will James try and weasel his way out of prison by claiming insanity? Chambers claimed it's NOT likely.

So far, no decision has been made as to HOW many charges will be filed, but James will not be charged for domestic terrorism. The immediate next step will be talking to those involved, to gather as MUCH information as possible, over the next few months.

Chambers indicated that the entire trial could take over a year, and urges anyone with pertinent information to step forward.

    He doesn't deserve the easy getaway of the death penalty.He deserves to rot away in prison for the rest of his life

    Whether you are for the death penalty or not if you do not apply it in this case you shoul abolish it in this state because you apply it unfairly. He is the definition of a terrorist and under our law that is the most heinous of crimes. If he does go to prison he will be in protective custody for his stay because of threats. You would be big man on campus if you killed this guy and the family could sue "protective custody". This guy doesn't want to die he obviously wanted to see the carnage he caused or he would not have been wearing protective gear head to toe.

    When he invited evil in like he did, killed and destroyed so many people and families, he invited a number of bad things to happen like life imprisonment and the death penalty. I wouldn't be surprised if what happened to Jeffrey Dahlmer, who was killed by another prisoner, will happen to him as well. He can't expect anyone to feel sorry for him.

    Re: whatupperez1 – Dahmer petitioned to be in Genpop and he was killed, he could have stayed in protective custody.

    A year for the courts? He is the sick freak who did this and you want to draw it out in the courts. At the Colorado tax payers expense when there is overwelming evidence. This should take a month to gather all evidence against him and sentence him. No need to bring in witnesses, why? It's really shameful. He should not be sedated…let him think himself to death!!! Death penalty by hanging.

    Death penalty is a crime against humanity.

    To tell you the truth I feel really bad for this guy . He was some what a loner . He had no friends . He should have gotten help . He was maybe depressed . I know it is not an excuse for what he did and I feel really bad for all the families

    HE IS SO FUCKING TRYING TO PLAY THAT INSANE ROLL…
    HE KNOWS EXACTLY HOW TO FAKE IT, HE'S BEEN STUDYING FOR YEARS….
    CRAZY FUCK…..
    HIS HAIR MATCHES THE HELL HE'S GONNA BE LIVING…
    I HOPE IT STAYS…

    Perez please stop giving this asshole attention! He is a sick murderer trying to play insane and he does NOT deserve all this media notoriety. Don't give him what he wants, let all the other idiot media outlets stoop to his demands, and feature the families who unfairly lost a loved one. We DON'T know their names and we want to!!! Why are the victims anonymous in this? They should be the ones given a spotlight. Don't kill him, let the prisoners do that for the good of all humankind.

    He was in a PHD program for neuroscience, purchased all of the guns and ammo that he used in the last few months, and also set up over 30 booby traps, and explosive devices in his home prior to the attack. This was not the act of some insane person. It was a calculated attack planned by someone who who had evil and hatred in his heart. Why should our tax money pay for someone like that to live out his days prison? The death penalty provides some closure to his family, and doesn't waste one more penny that necessary on this sicko.

    I hope this asshole gets nothing less than the death penalty. They need to fry his ass in an electric chair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: pat – You feel sorry for this twisted killer? Maybe you need some help too then…
    I feel many things when I see or hear about this assh0le, and sympathy is definitely not one of them. You cannot make excuses for someone who killed as many people as he did, and wanted more innocent people to die in the process. If he was so depressed as you say, why wouldn't he just kill himself? I don't understand how anyone could feel sorry for a disgusting, evil f*ck like this.

    I think the DA is crazy (or rather blind or just not paying attention) if she thinks he's not going to plea insanity. IMO that's clearly what he's trying to set up. However the "insanity" appears very calculated to me and his court appearances are more like performance.

    do u feel sorry for a man who had it all but chose this path…

    a phd would make u blow ur own brains out not try and kill innocent people,

    i graduated uni and havent had a job in it do u see me blowing anyones brains out no … do u see me murdering innocent people and booby trappeing my house no
    he made a choice

    he needs to die society cant function with people like this who have it all every opportunity under the sun and yet still choose this path..
