CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Prosecutors have released new photos taken in the chaotic aftermath of the Colorado theater shooting, including pictures of the auditorium where James Holmes killed 12 people.

The images, which prosecutors released in response to open-records requests, also show the elaborate homemade explosives in Holmes' apartment, which he had rigged into a potentially deadly booby trap. The hundreds of photos include images of the three guns Holmes used in the July 20, 2012, shooting and his car, where he dressed head-to-toe in body armor before slipping into the packed movie theater. More than 70 others were injured.

Prosecutors showed most of the photos to jurors during Holmes' four-month trial. He was convicted of 165 felonies and sentenced to life in prison because jurors could not agree that he deserved the death penalty.
