Washington Post: Giffords condition unchanged; shooting suspect Loughner held without bail


January 11, 2011- The doctor treating Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) said early Tuesday that tests show no new swelling in her brain, nearly three days after an assailant shot her at close range during an informal constituent event.

"No change," Michael Lemole, chief of neurosurgery at University Medical Center in Tucson, told NBC's "Today" show after Giffords's daily CT scan. "And, as frustrating as that may sound, that's a good thing."

One hundred miles away in Phoenix, the young man accused of the rampage that killed six and injured 14 on Saturday was being held without bail after an appearance in federal court.

Shooting suspect Jared Loughner, 22, faces five federal counts, including two charges of murder. More than a dozen federal marshals stood by Monday afternoon as Magistrate Judge Lawrence O. Anderson listed the potential punishments Loughner faces if convicted, including life in prison and the death penalty.

Anderson asked the suspect if he understood. Loughner, his head shaved and his right temple showing a small gash, and leaned into the microphone and answered calmly: "Yes."
