Though Holmes had "constant homicidal thoughts," he had never revealed specific targets or plans before the attack.
The Aurora theater shooter was a quitter who gave up on life.
The law in this area requires decisions that are uniquely individualized -- not only as to the defendant, his offense, and his victims, but also as to each individual juror making the ultimate life-or-death decision.
"Please, no more death," his defense attorney had said.
The court will announce the jury's decision at 5 p.m. MDT today.
