Suspect in Arizona shooting held without bail
PHOENIX (AP) - The suspect in a deadly Arizona shooting is being held without bail and has been assigned a lawyer who defended Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Timothy McVeigh.
Jared Loughner entered a Phoenix courtroom Monday handcuffed and
wearing a tan inmate uniform. His head is shaved and he has a cut on his right temple.
The 22-year-old is accused of killing six people on Saturday and injuring 14 others, including U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
His expression was impassive as he walked in, looked straight at the crowd at the back of the room packed with reporters, then turned around to speak to his attorney, Judy Clarke. He responded "yes" when asked if he understood his rights.
The courtroom was under heavy guard with about a dozen U.S. marshals.
