James Holmes, 27, will serve life in prison without parole for the murders, as well as 3,200 additional years for attempted murder and explosives convictions.

Sentencing Holmes on Wednesday (26Aug15), Judge Carlos Samour said, "The defendant will never be a free man again, ever. The place of death, generally speaking, has been determined. The only question that remains unanswered is the time of death."

Holmes opened gunfire during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises.
