Jurors found James Holmes guilty of all the counts against him

There are 165 counts listed against James Eagan Holmes in the 2012 Aurora theater shooting, grouped as first-degree murder and first-degree murder with extreme indifference; attempted murder and attempted murder with extreme indifference; explosives charges; and weapons charges. You can download the court document listing the itemized charges here.

First-degree murder

Each of the first 12 counts are of Murder in the First Degree: "On or about 7/20/2012, James Eagan Holmes unlawfully, feloniously, after deliberation, and with the intent to cause the death of a person other than himself, caused the death of [the victim]; in violation of section 18-3-102(1)(a), C.R.S."

Jurors found Holmes guilty of all 12 counts of first-degree murder.

The next 12 counts of Murder in the First degree are for "extreme indifference" because Holmes shot into a crowded movie theater: "On or about 7/20/2015, James Eagan Holmes , under circumstances evidencing an attitude of universal malice manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life generally, knowingly engaged in conduct which created a grave risk of death to persons other than himself, and thereby caused the death of [the victim]; in violation of section 18-3-102(1)(d), C.R.S."

Jurors found Holmes guilty of all 12 counts of first-degree murder with "extreme indifference." 

Attempted murder

The attempted murder counts follow a similar pattern: "On or about 7/20/2012, by engaging in conduct constituting a substantial step toward the commission of murder in the first degree, James Eagan Holmes unlawfully, feloniously, after deliberation, and with the intent to cause the death of a person other than himself, attempted to cause the death of [the victim]; in violation of sections 19-3-102(1)(a) and 18-2-101, C.R.S."

Jurors found Holmes guilty of all counts of attempted murder. In some counts, Holmes was found guilty of lesser included charges, such as attempted second-degree murder.

Followed by the "extreme indifference" counts: On or about 7/20/2012, by engaging in conduct constituting a substantial step toward the commission of murder in the first degree, James Eagan Holmes unlawfully and feloniously, under circumstances evidencing an attitude of universal malice manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life generally, knowingly engaged in conduct which created a grave risk of death to persons other than himself, and thereby attempted to cause the death of [the victim]; in violation of sections 18-3-102(1)(d), C.R.S." 

Jurors found Holmes guilty of all counts of attempted murder with "extreme indifference." In some counts, Holmes was found guilty of lesser included charges, such as attempted second-degree murder with "extreme indifference."

Apartment explosives

Count 141 relates to the way prosecutors say Holmes rigged his apartment with explosives and trip wires as a diversion. It reads: "On or about 7/20/2012, in Adams County, Colorado, James Eagan Holmes unlawfully, feloniously, and knowingly possessed, controlled, manufactured, gave, mailed, sent, or caused to be sent an explosive device; in violation of section 18-12-109(2), C.R.S."

Jurors found Holmes guilty of unlawfully using an explosive device. 

Weapons

Count 142 has to do with the weaponry Holmes used during the attack at the theater: "On or about 7/20/2012 unlawfully used, or possessed and threatened the use of, a deadly weapon, namely: Assault Weapon, Shotgun and Handgun during the commission of, attempted commission of, conspiracy to commit, or the immediate flight from, the offenses of Murder in the First Degree and Attempted Murder in the First Degree, as charged in counts 1 through 140 and in Counts 143-166; in violation of section 18-1.3-406(2)(a)(I)(A), C.R.S.

This count is a sentence enhancer, according to Judge Samour.
