Giffords’ Husband Comments on Sentencing

“Not exactly closure, but it is resolution,” is how Mark Kelly described his wife Gabby Giffords’ feelings about the sentencing of her shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, Thursday. In an interview with Diane Sawyer, the former congresswoman’s husband said Giffords stared into Loughner’s eyes as Kelly spoke to the court and noticed “[He was] a little defiant in the way looking at us and looking at Gabby. I got the sense he was trying to intimidate us, especially my wife.” Loughner was given seven life sentences without parole for the shooting that killed six and injured 13, including Giffords. Kelly spoke on his wife’s behalf at the trial and told Loughner she is “done thinking about you.”
