Nearly three years after a man walked into an Aurora, Colorado movie theater and killed 12 people and injured 70 others, the gunman's trial begins today.

Attorneys for the defendant, James Holmes, have admitted he was the gunman, but he has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

Opening statements are expected to begin at approximately 1 p.m. MT. Our coverage begins at noon.
