James Holmes

More details have emerged about the attack on Aurora movie theater shooter James Holmes in a Colorado state penitentiary in October.

Holmes, 28, opened fire in a movie theater, killing 12 and injuring 70 in 2012. He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in August.
