Jared Lee Loughner, accused in January’s mass shooting in which he allegedly tried to assassinate a congresswoman, isn’t competent to stand trial, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.
The judge said he based his decision on a mental evaluation of Loughner.
During his hearing, Loughner was removed by marshals from the courtroom after an outburst, in which one reporter heard him say, “Thank you for the freak show. She died right in front of me,” and “You’re changing.”
