Loughner Competent, Pleads Guilty To Ariz. Shooting

Originally published on Tue August 7, 2012 6:00 pm

Jared Loughner pleaded guilty on Tuesday to all counts related to last year's shooting spree in Tucson. Audie Cornish talks with Ted Robbins about the court proceedings, where the judge in the case found that psychiatric care and medication had rendered Loughner fit for trial. His plea was part of a deal with prosecutors that spared Loughner the death penalty.
