PHOENIX (AP) — Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords hugged her husband after a judge sentenced the man who shot her and killed six people to life in prison.
Jared Loughner showed little response to the sentence, which he’d agreed to in a deal that kept him from a federal death sentence. He watched people and appeared to be paying attention. He wore dress pants and a dark brown shirt with a tie.
Loughner’s mother sobbed during the hearing. U.S. marshals escorted the parents from the courtroom after the sentencing.
