Mark Kelly, the astronaut husband of former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, described a "pretty intense" court hearing Thursday during which he felt Giffords and the man who nearly killed her had "quite the staring contest."

A federal judge sentenced Jared Lee Loughner to seven consecutive life terms, plus 140 years, for killing six people and injuring 13 others, including Giffords, in a January 2011 shooting rampage in Tucson.
