Schiavo's feeding tube has been reinserted and she is now receiving liquids-
but apparently her family is not allowed to see her.

Schiavo's husband has the power to designate who can see his wife and he's reportedly exercising that right.
Michael Schiavo has been in a legal battle with his wife's parents over whether she should be allowed to die.
He won a court order to have the feeding tube removed last week, but it was re-inserted last night after Florida's governor stepped in.

Sniper suspect John Muhammad gives up representing himself- and today puts his case back in the hands of attorneys.

[VO-NAT]


Muhammad is on trial for the murder of Dean Meyers at a Manassas gas station-
On the stand today- the man who sold Muhammad the car police believe was used in the attacks.
Chris Okupski (Oh-Cupski) says the 1990 Chevy did NOT have an opening cut in the rear when it was sold.
When Muhammad and alleged accomplice Lee Malvo were arrested - the car had a hole in the trunk and a platform inside.
Police believe the men would lay in the back and fire at their targets through the opening.
Okupski also said Muhammad laid down in the trunk before buying the car.
His defense attorney says it's not unusual for consumers to inspect the trunk before buying a car.
