Mike Watkiss' court report: Loughner and Almaleki

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Two high-profile cases are in court today.

Alleged Tucson shooter Jared Loughner will be arraigned today.

In addition, opening arguments will begin in the case of an Iraqi immigrant accused of running down his daughter in what has been dubbed an "honor killing."

Mike Watkiss gave us the lowdown on both cases.

"The Valley of the Sun is hosting two of the most extraordinary courtroom dramas," Watkiss said. "Nothing that you can see in prime time is going to match these two trials. They are fascinating trials."
