Jared Loughner to Plead Guilty on Tuesday


Jared Lee Loughner, the deranged man who gunned down six people outside an Arizona supermarket and sent then-Representative Gabby Giffords into a coma back in January 2011, has been deemed competent to stand trail. And Reuters has learned that authorities believe the 23-year-old — who’s been heavily medicated for schizophrenia —  plans to plead guilty at a Tuesday hearing. Details of a possible plea arrangement with the government prosecution remain a secret, but, with Loughner facing 49 charges and the electric chair, a safe guess would be life in prison with the death penalty off the table.
