Death Penalty Unlikely for Colorado 'Joker'

Although, the District Attorney handling the 'Batman' movie theater shooting said that the death penalty is being considered for James Holmes—it’s unlikely that such will be the case in a state that has a history of shying away from executing convicted criminals. It is interesting to note that in the last 30 years there has only been one execution in Colorado. The Associated Press has more on the story:
“Holmes is expected to be formally charged next Monday. Holmes is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder, and he could also face additional counts of aggravated assault and weapons violations.”
