holmesPUEBLO, CO – James Holmes is the suspect in last summer’s theater shooting spree in Aurora, Colorado that left 12 people dead and injured dozens of others. Holmes is now going on a little trip, but this is no summer vacation.

The judge in Holmes’ murder trial has accepted his plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. Now Holmes will be taken to the Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo for evaluation. He’s expected to return to jail on August 2.

It`s no doubt that anyone who would walk into a dark movie theater and open fire on innocent people has a few screws loose. But a lot of families in Colorado hope jumping on the crazy train doesn’t get him off Scot free. Now that would be insane.
