Arapahoe (Colo.) County prosecutors will seek capital punishment for James Holmes after concluding that "justice is death" for the man who allegedly killed 12 people and injured 58 in the Aurora theater massacre.

"It is my determination and my intention that in this case, for James Eagan Holmes, justice is death," Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler said at a Monday court hearing, reports the Denver Post.

District Judge Carlos A. Samour set a trial date of Feb. 2, 2014 for what is expcted to be a four-month trial.

Holmes' attorneys had attempted to avoid a possible death penalty by seeking a plea agreement for life in prison for a guilty plea. That agreement was rejected Friday.

Death is the only sentence fitting enough for this guy IMHO. Life in prison only serves to provide him with a platform to exalt himself. He would become another Charles Manson.

The problem with the death penalty is he will spent up to 15 years on death row and cost the state millions in appeals. I think there should be set time for appeal and once it runs out that's it. I'm surprised he didn't get off on a insanity plea.

The death sentence law in Colorado is just a formality. When was the last time anyone was put to death in Colorado? I'm ex-L.E. from the Denver-Metro area, and do not see it ever happening. Remember Nathan Dunlap the Chucky Cheese shooter/killer. Still alive and living large. Just another way for the Colorado Liberal Judical System to act as if their doing something other than screwing up killers release dates.
