Loughner was scheduled to make his first court appearance on Monday at 4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Officials said they were still working to appoint an attorney to represent him. They said one option is San Diego attorney Judy Clarke, who served on the teams that defended Oklahoma City federal building bomber Timothy McVeigh and “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski.

At this point little is known about Loughner’s home life or youth. He lives with his parents in a middle-class neighborhood in southern Arizona. His mother, Amy Loughner, works for Tucson’s Parks Department. The employment history of his father Randy Loughner remains unknown.

The younger Loughner attended Mountain View High School in Tucson. He began taking classes at Pima Community College in 2005, according to a news release from the school.

In 2007, he apparently had contact with Representative Giffords. According to court documents, he received a letter from her office thanking him for attending a “Congress on Your Corner” event that year. Giffords was holding a similar event on Saturday when she was shot.
