Jury selection begins tomorrow in the trial of James Holmes, the 27-year-old man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 others during a shooting spree in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater in 2012.

It was one of the most vicious mass killings in the country’s history and prosecutors are expected to seek the death penalty. Ben Markus of Here & Now contributor Colorado Public Radio is covering the trial and joins host Jeremy Hobson with details.
