Gabrielle Giffords, husband Mark Kelly moving back to Tucson

TUCSON, AZ - Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband are moving back to Tucson on Sunday.

Giffords' return to Arizona comes a year and a half after she moved to Houston to undergo intensive physical and speech therapy after she wounded by a gunman at an event outside a grocery store.

Giffords' husband, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, told the Arizona Daily Star that he's in the process of transitioning his wife to some therapy in Tucson but says it's not going to be the six to eight hours per day she'd been doing in Houston.

Giffords was among 19 people who were shot in the attack. She and 12 others survived, while six others died.
Jared Lee Loughner pleaded guilty on Aug. 2 to the shooting rampage.
