Prosecutors are meeting today to discuss taking the case to trial.
Ballistics has now linked 11 of the shootings to the gun found in the suspects' car.
Muhammad, an Army veteran, is considered an expert marksman.
But military officials say he never received special operations or sniper training during his 17 years of service.

NOW THAT POLICE ARE CALLING JOHN ALLEN MUHAMMAD AND JOHN LEE MALVO 'SUSPECTS' IN THE WASHINGTON AREA SNIPER KILLINGS -- PROSECUTORS FROM THE JURISDICTIONS INVOLVED IN THE CASE PLAN TO MEET TODAY TO DISCUSS FILING CHARGES AGAINST THE TWO.

(SOT: Chief Charles Moose/Montgomery County Police)

"We want to thank law enforcement for working around the clock."
AUTHORITIES SAY BALLISTICS TESTS LINK THE AR-15 RIFLE SEIZED AT THURSDAY'S ARREST TO 8 OF THE KILLINGS. AND POLICE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT THE CAR MUHAMMAD AND MALVO WERE FOUND SLEEPING IN AT THAT MARYLAND REST STOP WAS RIGGED SO THEY COULD SHOOT THEIR VICTIMS FROM INSIDE THE TRUNK. MUHAMMAD APPEARED BEFORE A JUDGE YESTERDAY IN BALTIMORE ON UNRELATED FIREARMS CHARGES... HE IS DUE BACK IN COURT TUESDAY. MEANWHILE, MALVO IS BEING HELD AS A MATERIAL WITNESS. HIS JUVENILE PROCEEDINGS ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.

(NATS)


THE APPARENT BREAK IN THIS CASE CAME WHEN SOMEONE CLAIMING TO BE THE SNIPER CALLED POLICE AND REFERRED TO A ROBBERY - HOMOCIDE IN MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA. A PARTIAL FINGERPRINT FOUND AT THE SCENE OF THE LIQUOR STORE LED POLICE TO MALVO WHO WAS CONNECTED TO MUHAMMAD LIVING IN WASHINGTON STATE.... AND LATER IN MARYLAND. THAT ULTIMATELY LED POLICE TO THE CAR.

The blaze broke out just after two o'clock yesterday afternoon in the 3- hundred block of Salem Avenue, next door to the Transportation Museum. Authorities say the fire started in the basement and quickly spread to the roof shooting flames 30- feet into the air.
It took firefighters nearly three hours to get the blaze under control. The fire was contained to the one building that was used to store electrical supplies. Fire investigators plan to come in first thing this morning to decide if the building needs to be torn down. Authorities fear that surrounding walls could collapse- Salem Avenue between the 3- hundred and 5- hundred blocks will remain closed this morning.

Yesterday, Workman told the jury that the man who was with Keith Bailey that night had threatened to kill him. James *Bumbry* had been in Bailey's car as they were all getting ready to leave the restaurant parking lot. Bumbry said something to Workman and a woman he was with, prompting Workman to give him "the finger." Workman says Bumbry jumped out of the car and said, "you don't know who I am."

Roy Inge Junior was supposed to go on trial November 4th for the murder of Pittsylvania County deputy Frankie Betterton.
But defense attorneys said they wouldn't be prepared because a mental evaluation is not yet complete.
The judge in the case agreed and set a new trial date of February Third.
Defense attorneys still hope to move the trial out of Pittsylvania County, but the judge said he'll try to seat a jury before making that decision.
