Judge to mull an extension of Loughner’s treatment


TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The man accused of wounding Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in a deadly shooting rampage has arrived for a hearing at federal court in Tucson.

KMSB-TV reports Jared Loughner arrived shortly before 8:30 a.m. in downtown Tucson to make his first court appearance since an angry outburst got him kicked out of a May competency hearing.

Loughner’s mental status is again the order of business, as a judge decides whether it’s likely the 23-year-old can be made competent to stand trial.
