Loughner Pleads Guilty

Loughner pleaded guilty on Tuesday to the shooting in Arizona that killed six people and injured 13 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. In exchange for the plea deal, the government will not seek the death penalty. Rep. Giffords announced in a statement through her husband that she supports Jared Loughner's plea agreement. A psychologist testified Tuesday that Loughner is competent to stand trial. Sentencing for the case is set for November 15.
