Suspect in AZ Shootings Found Unfit for Trial

Jared Loughner, accused in an Arizona shooting spree that killed a federal judge and wounded a congresswoman, was found Wednesday not mentally competent to stand trial.

Judge Larry A. Burns of Federal District Court made the ruling, according to a New York Times article, and Loughner will be held in a pyschiatric facility as a result.

Six people, including Judge John Roll, were killed in the January rampage and 13, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, were injured (see Gavel Grab).
