‘Get out’: Life sentences for US cinema shooter


CENTENNIAL, Colorado: James Holmes was ordered out of a Colorado courtroom in shackles Wednesday to begin serving consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole for shooting dead 12 people in a packed “Batman” movie premiere. District Judge Carlos Samour, who spent two days listening to statements from victims and survivors of the 2012 mass shooting, ordered Holmes, 27, to serve 12 consecutive sentences of life in prison for each of the dead. He also ordered maximum sentences on the remaining guilty verdicts for attempted murder returned against Holmes for the 70 other people wounded in the rampage. “Get the defendant out of my courtroom, please,” Samour then said.
