    UNDATED (CNN) -- A judge is expected to rule on Jared Loughner's mental ability to stand trial this week, this according to the LA Times.

    The newspaper reports that two mental health experts have evaluated Loughner.

    Those findings will be reviewed during a hearing in an Arizona federal court Wednesday.

    The LA Times says if Loughner is ruled mentally unstable, he could be kept in custody under psychiatric evaluation to see if he can stand trial at a later time.

    He is accused of shooting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others in Tucson earlier this year.

    Six people were killed.
