Good evening. I'm Shannon Young in for Jean Jadhon.
It took two days for a Virginia jury to decide sniper suspect Lee Malvo should spend the rest of his life in prison. After eight and a-half hours of deliberations, jurors decided to spare the teen's life, voting late this afternoon for imprisonment without parole. Scott Rapoport is in Chesapeake with more.

Manpower shortages in the Lynchburg Fire Department are apparently forcing the city to close one of its eight neighborhood fire stations on Christmas Day.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Lynchburg]


A handmade sign outside Station Number Two on Grace Street is informing the public of the closure and suggests residents call the city manager.
A combination of retirements, vacation time and sick leave has resulted in the department taking the Station Two engine out of service for a day.
That could result in a delay in response time as firefighters from another station respond to emergency calls.
