TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The husband of Gabrielle Giffords is speaking to the man who shot her, as she stands by his side.
Former astronaut Mark Kelly spoke directly to Jared Loughner, saying he changed his wife's life forever but couldn't dent her spirit.
It was the first time Giffords came face-to-face with Loughner. She did not speak.
Giffords and Kelly walked slowly to the podium, the former congresswoman appearing to struggle with her steps.
Loughner shot Giffords and 17 others in the attack, killing six. As part of a plea agreement, he is being sentenced to life in prison.
