Prosecutors said they will indict Jared Lee Loughner on more federal charges by March 9, a court order said Thursday.
U.S. District Judge Larry Burns said in the order that he expects a trial to begin before Sept. 20.
Loughner, 22, is the alleged gunman in the Jan. 8 shooting that authorities call an assassination attempt on U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Loughner was indicted last month on charges of shooting Giffords and two of her aides, Ron Barber and Pamela Simon.
Loughner was originally charged with two federal murder counts in the deaths of Gabriel Zimmerman, another Giffords aide, and Arizona's chief federal judge, John Roll.
Those charges were dismissed last month because of procedural deadlines. U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke said at the time that he expected to refile the charges soon.
Six were killed and 13 wounded in the attack on a constituent meet-and-greet at a Northwest Side grocery store. Giffords remains in a Houston rehab facility, recovering from her wounds. All of the other survivors have been released from the hospital.
State charges in the deaths and wounding of the other victims are expected after Loughner's trial in the federal case.
