[...] defense attorney Richard O'Carroll said the procedure was not unusual and that the prosecution's case - not the jury- was to blame for the mistrial. Unlike the previous two trials, Holmes had instructed jurors that they could convict Kepler of first-degree murder or the lesser charge of manslaughter. Manslaughter carries a sentence of four years to life in prison, while the sentence on a first-degree murder conviction is life in prison.
