Theater shooting suspect offers plea deal

Aurora, Colorado, shooting suspect James Holmes has offered to plead guilty and spend the rest of his life behind bars in exchange for avoiding the death penalty, according to court documents filed Wednesday.

Prosecutors have not accepted the offer because they may choose to pursue the death penalty. Prosecutors have said they will make a decision on whether or not to seek the death penalty against the 25-year-old Holmes at a hearing April 1.

    Let him plead guilty & spend the rest of his life in fear & guilt! Not only will that save Coloradoans the cost of a trial, but death is too merciful for this maniac!!
