PHOENIX - Jared Loughner, the man accused of killing six people and wounding then-US Representative Gabrielle Giffords in 2011, is set to plead guilty in a Tucson court on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Times reported on Saturday.

The paper, quoting "knowledgeable sources" that it did not name, said psychiatric experts who have examined Loughner were scheduled to testify in Tuesday's mental competency hearing that he is competent to stand trial and understands the 49 charges against him.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the report, and an email to a team of four attorneys representing Loughner was not immediately returned. A spokesman for the US Attorney's office in Arizona could not be immediately reached for comment.
