Aurora Theater Killer Assaulted in Jail

James Holmes, the convicted mass killer who gunned down more than a dozen people at a movie theater in 2012, was assaulted by a fellow prisoner at the high-security Colorado state prison where he is currently serving multiple life sentences. Holmes was not injured, according to a corrections official, when 27-year-old Mark C. Daniels attacked him and “took some swings” as the pair were being escorted by guards down a hallway on Oct. 8. Holmes was moved to the prison in September, though officials say it is unclear where he will serve out the rest of his sentence, since his high-profile makes him a security risk.
