The suspect in the deadly shooting in Tucson that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords, is heading back to the hospital.

Jared Lee Loughner, 22, left Arizona on Friday to head to a Missouri prison facility.

Loughner will now spend up to four months at the facility in Springfield where mental health experts will try to make him psychologically fit to stand trial.

On Wednesday, a judge ruled that Loughner was mentally unfit to stand trial after yelling at the judge.

Loughner is believed to be suffering from schizophrenia. His next hearing is set for September 21.
