Saturday marks one year since Colorado theater massacre

AURORA, Colo. — Saturday marks the one year anniversary of the deadly movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado. 

On July 20, 2012 suspect James Holmes allegedly opened fire in a crowded movie theater at the midnight premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Twelve people died and more than 70 others were injured.

Holmes was arrested outside of the theater just minutes after the killings.

Earlier in 2013, his lawyers offered for him to plead guilty in order to avoid the death penalty, but prosecutors turned it down. They still are seeking the death penalty in this case.
