A judge has ruled that Jared Loughner, the suspect in last year’s Arizona shooting rampage, is still not mentally fit to stand trial and will likely remain in a federal hospital for at least four more months. Loughner was expected to be released from a hospital in Missouri on Feb. 8, but psychologists working with him have insisted he stay. Loughner, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia, is charged with 49 felonies stemming from the January shootings that left former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically injured. The latest ruling will be discussed in a court hearing by prosecutors and Loughner’s attorneys on Monday. Meanwhile, employees at an independent movie theater in Arizona recently discovered a short film Loughner submitted a year before the shootings. The three-minute, silent film was titled “W-I-L-D” and featured alternating scenes of a desert and beach, with the words “Lucid Dream” written in the sand.
