Jurors convicted Colorado theater shooter James Holmes on Thursday in the chilling 2012 attack on defenseless moviegoers at a midnight Batman premiere, rejecting defense arguments that the former graduate student was insane and driven to murder by delusions. The 27-year-old Holmes, who had been working toward his Ph.D. in neuroscience, could get the death penalty for the massacre that left 12 people dead and dozens of others wounded. Jurors took about 12 hours over a day and a half to review all 165 charges. The same panel must now decide whether Holmes should pay with his life.

On Friday, Sandra Bland, a black student outreach coordinator at Prairie View A&M in Texas, was arrested in Prairie View, Tx., following a routine traffic stop for failure to signal a lane change. Three days later, she was dead in her cell at Waller County Jail. Suicide by hanging is the official cause of death, but Bland’s family believes it was something much more sinister. “The family of Sandra Bland is confident that she was killed and did not commit suicide,” the family’s law firm wrote in a statement released this week. The matter is being investigated by the Texas Rangers.

Greece on Thursday won vital pledges of support from bailout lenders needed to keep its economy from collapsing, but officials in Athens said the painful austerity measures demanded in return were likely to force an election within months. Hours after parliament approved the tough new cuts, the government promised to reopen banks on Monday and gradually restore services — helped by higher cash support from the European Central Bank. The news buoyed world markets and came as a relief in Greece, where banks and the stock market have been closed for nearly three weeks. Though the Finance Minister of Germany put a damper on things… saying Greece might want to consider leaving the Eurozone at some point.
