James Eagan Holmes faces the possibility of the death penalty for carrying out the Dark Knight Rises cinema shooting in 2012.

A Colorado jury agreed to consider capital punishment today (August 3) as Holmes's murder trial moves into its final penalty phase.

His legal team and family had argued that he was not guilty by reason of insanity prior to the verdict being rendered on July 16.

Holmes killed 12 and injured 70 others when he opened fire at a late-night screening of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, 2012.
