Need To Know News: Arizona assassination attempt updates

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" will put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For January 10, 2011, Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords recovers following the assassination attempt that left six others dead.

From CNN: "Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords can follow simple commands from doctors after being shot through the head at a meeting with constituents, and a longtime adviser said Sunday he is confident she'll survive her wound." 20 people were shot at a constituent meet-and-greet in Tucson on Saturday – six, including a federal judge and a nine-year-old girl, were killed.

• More details are emerging about the suspect, Jared Lee Loughner. From CNN's Drew Griffin: "The suspect in the weekend massacre in Arizona was kicked out of an algebra class at a community college in June after repeated interruptions and clearly "needed psychological help," his instructor said Sunday." Also – what IS Jared Lee Loughner?

• The youngest person to die in the shooting was nine-year-old Christina Green. She was born on September 11, 2001. From CNN: "Christina attended the event hosted by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords because she had recently been chosen for the student council at Mesa Verde Elementary School."

• Another blizzard is hitting the United States, this time in the Southeast: "A major winter storm system was rolling across the southeastern United States early Monday, sending out shocks of snow, freezing rain and sleet, and forcing some airlines to cancel flights."

• The Beckhams are having another baby. Victoria Beckham announced her fourth pregnancy. Meanwhile David Beckham could be headed to play for the Tottenham Spurs.

• In its third week of release, "True Grit" finally earned the top spot at the domestic box office. From John Young: "The overall box office dropped 30 percent from last weekend to gross an estimated $112 million. If studio estimates hold, it could be the worst first weekend of January since 2000."
