Grandfather of youngest victim: 'It doesn't make sense'

The grandfather of six-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan, the youngest to die in the massacre, has said it "does not make sense" her killer was spared the death penalty.

Robert Sullivan said: "We have to abide by it, we have to accept it.

"And there are those of us who believe he may be killed in prison which would probably happen sooner than if he were sentenced to death."

District attorney: 'Death is justice for what that guy did'

The district attorney who prosecuted James Holmes said he should have got the death penalty for his crimes.

Holmes, who killed 12 and wounded 70 when he opened fire in a cinema, will serve life without parole.

George Brauchler told a news conference after the sentencing: "I thought death, I still think death, is justice for what that guy did.

"But the system said otherwise, and I'll honour that and I respect that outcome."
