Victim’s granddad: Holmes jury results don’t make sense
The grandfather of a 6-year-old girl killed in the Colorado theater shooting says the jury's rejection of a death penalty for gunman James Holmes doesn't make sense.
Robert Sullivan says jurors previously rejected Holmes' insanity defense and he thinks there might have been a lone holdout on the panel that prevented a death sentence from being reached. A breakdown of the jury vote has not been released.
Sullivan says Holmes is living and "our loved ones are gone" but the families of victims will have to abide by the outcome.
The jury deliberated six and a half hours over two days. A death sentence required a unanimous verdict.
Judge Carlos Samour will officially sentence Holmes to life in prison without the possibility of parole after a three-day sentencing hearing starting Aug. 24.
