Sniper Suspects to Be Tried First in Virginia

The state of Virginia will have first chance to try sniper suspects John Allen Muhammad, 41, and John Lee Malvo, 17. U.S. Attorney General Ashcroft orders Muhammad transferred to Prince William County, Va. Malvo will also face trial in Virginia, where his youth would not disqualify him from a possible death sentence. NPR's News reports.
