Editor's note: Jurors in the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting trial will soon hear closing arguments in the second sentencing phase. Then they will decide if James Holmes' planning and calculated shooting outweighs his mental illness and otherwise clean record, The Denver Post reports. Jurors have already found that prosecutors proved the aggravating factors necessary to consider a death sentence. If they unanimously agree the aggravating factors outweigh the mitigating factors, the sentencing will move forward and jurors will decide on the death penalty. If the decision in this second phase isn't unanimous, Holmes will be sentenced to life in prison without parole. - Stephanie
