ared Lee Loughner, the man accused of shooting and killing six people, and wounding 13 others, including former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, last January in Tucson, Ariz., will return to court on Tuesday. A court-appointed psychiatrist is expected to testify that Loughner, who has been forcibly medicated at a prison, is now mentally fit to enter a guilty plea. In the plea deal, Loughner would likely get life in prison.
