Three years after James Holmes allegedly gunned down 12 people in a Colorado movie theatre, and after an 11-week trial, a jury of mostly women (9 women and 3 men), is set to decide the 27-year-old’s fate. After hearing from experts who say he was say at the time and others who say we was not, they have to decide on 165 charges – most for murder and attempted murder. If the jury accepts defendant James Holmes’s insanity plea, Holmes will be sentenced to life in prison instead of death.

With members of his own party skeptical and Republicans downright hostile, President Obama on Tuesday sought to convince members of Congress to back the historic agreement reached between the U.S., Iran and five other world powers to curb Iran’s nuclear power. He said he welcomes a robust debate over the terms of the deal, but warned that he would veto any attempt to block the deal. The President will apparently start his persuasion tour promptly on Wednesday, when he has scheduled an afternoon press conference to discuss the agreement, as winning over the American people first is regarded as a sound strategy.

First, Amazon announced its Prime Day sale for Wednesday, with hundreds of price deals promised in honor of the retail giant’s 20th anniversary. Things like a 32-inch LED TV for just $75, or a 40-incher for $115. Now, these deals are only available to those who are members of Amazon Prime, which includes a membership fee. But nonetheless, Walmart has countered saying it will offer more than 2,000 discounts to anyone who visits their website on Wednesday as well. Amazon isn’t so pleased about that, but capitalism at its finest, competition breeds lower prices. Wednesday morning, the websites should be lighting up like its December.

Closing arguments began on Tuesday in the James Holmes Colorado theater shooting trial, with the jury expected to start deliberations on Wednesday. The jury must decide whether Holmes was legally insane when he opened fire at a midnight movie, suffering from delusions that each person he killed would increase his self-worth. If they say he was sane, he could be executed… at the very least he will spend the rest of his life in either a prison, or a psychiatric institution. As was the case in Boston, with so many witnesses (many of who were victims) giving hours of testimony, the question of the guilt of the defendant was never an issue. Alex is in Centennial as the trial wraps up.
