Colorado StarColorado Star – Colorado state news service
The Colorado Star is essentially a local Colorado newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Colorado, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Colorado, Colorado, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Colorado Star.
CENTENNIAL, Colorado - The man accused of the July 2012 massacre at a Batman film premier in Colarado will plead not guilty because of "insanity", his lawyers have said.
The lawyers said that the 25-year-old James Holmes will ask for the change at a May 13 hearing related to the case of the murder of 12 dead people in a shooting that also injured 70 last year.
A judge previously entered a not guilty plea after the defence said Holmes was not ready to plead. That was a standard not guilty plea.
If the judge accepts the insanity plea, Holmes would be sent to the state mental hospital, where doctors would determine whether he was insane at the time of the shootings on July 20, 2012.
Holmes can still be found guilty despite a medical finding of insanity as he faces more than 160 counts of murder and attempted murder and could be executed if he is convicted.
Colorado law defines insanity as the inability to distinguish right from wrong, caused by a diseased or defective mind.
Prosecutors have indicated they will seek the death penalty for the former graduate student as they described the slayings at the showing of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises" as "especially heinous, cruel or depraved". ...
