Loughner ruled incompetent to stand trial
The story is in the New York Times:
TUCSON, Ariz. — A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Jared L. Loughner was not mentally competent to stand trial on charges that he opened fire at a constituent event for an Arizona congresswoman in January, killing six and injuring 13.
. . .
The ruling came after two experts who examined Mr. Loughner at a federal psychiatric facility in Missouri had determined that he was mentally incompetent and that he appeared to suffer from schizophrenia and experienced delusions and irrational thoughts.
