New Indictment for Arizona Shooter Jared Lee Loughner

A federal grand jury has issued a new, 49-count indictment of Jared Lee Loughner, the man accused of going on a shooting rampage at a congressional event that critically wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others, and killed federal judge John Roll and six others. The new indictment includes a murder charge for the killing of Judge Roll and includes indictments for the attacks on the non-federal-employees present on the grounds that the attacks occurred during a federally provided activity.
