Federal prosecutors seek prison psychologist's personal notes on Tucson shooting suspect
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) ¯¯¯ Federal prosecutors say they want to see a prison psychologist's personal notes on Tucson shooting rampage suspect Jared Lee Loughner.
In a motion filed Tuesday, prosecutors asked a federal judge for Bureau of Prisons psychologist Dr. Christina Pietz's personal notes from her latest competency evaluations of Loughner from Feb. 8 to June 7.
Prosecutors say the pages containing Pietz's notes of conversations with defense counsel can be redacted from the government's copies.
Loughner has pleaded not guilty to 49 charges stemming from the January 2011 shooting that killed six people and wounded former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others.
He remains in custody at a Missouri prison facility where he's undergoing treatment to make him mentally fit to stand trial. A status hearing is scheduled Aug. 7.
