Quoting unnamed law enforcement sources, the Washington Post reports, federal authorities are planning to move the trial of alleged gunman Jared Loughner to San Diego because of pre-trial publicity in Arizona.
There is already a strong San Diego connection to the case.
Local defense attorney Judy Clarke, has been chosen to represent Loughner.
San Diego-based federal judge Larry Burns has been appointed the case.
A final decision has yet to be made, but according to the report, the decision to move the trial to San Diego, is 'just a matter of time.'
Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is now listed in serious condition because she is breathing on her own.
Her husband tweeted this message -- "As my wonderful wife continues to make progress, let us all pause and reflect on this MLK day."
Giffords underwent a tracheotomy Sunday to remove her from a ventilator.
Two other people injured in the shooting are also still hospitalized. Both are listed in good condition.
