  • Colorado theater shooter's sister says his eyes changed

    When the younger sister of Colorado theater shooter James Holmes visited him in jail nearly two years after the attack, his eyes bulged from his head and he spoke in short, stilted phrases — a vast difference from the loving brother who protected her while they were growing up, she testified Monday. Chris Holmes, 22, became the first in her family to testify at her older brother’s death penalty trial Monday, saying in an effort to spare his life that she did not believe her brother was mentally ill growing up, but she also did not know how to recognize the signs. Jurors are considering whether James Holmes should serve life in prison without parole or be executed for killing 12 people and injuring 70 others in a crowded movie theater in Aurora, Colo., on July 20, 2012.
