The parents of James Holmes, the man facing charges for the 2012 mass shooting at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater, have spoken out asking that their son be spared the death penalty.
Robert and Arlene Holmes wrote in a letter their son is mentally ill and asked that he be ordered to life in treatment instead.
"We love our son, we have always loved him and we do not want him to be executed," they wrote.
