(AURORA, Colo.) — The jury in the James Holmes murder trial has been selected.
The jury consists of 24 people, 12 jurors and 12 alternates, including 19 women and five men. Holmes’ legal team made a late attempt to file for change of venue, but the judge denied the motion. The trial is currently scheduled to start on April 27.
Holmes is charged with 24 counts of first-degree murder in connection with the movie theater shooting that left 12 people dead and injured dozens more in Aurora, Colorado in 2013.
