Holmes, a 27-year-old failed neuroscience graduate student, told Judge Carlos Samour on July 21 that he will not testify for himself during the penalty phase. He said he voluntarily made his decision and was not pressured by his lawyers. He didn't testify for himself during the first phase of the trial either.
