File Tape Percy Lavar Walton was convicted
of the 1996 murders of three people.

Walton's mental state has been
debated since his trial and

three days before he was to be put to
death in May 2003, defense

lawyers won a temporary stay.

In a 7 to 6 ruling, a federal
court denied claims that Walton is
mentally retarded and insane.

He can still appeal to the U-S

taken a turn in Southwest Virginia.

VO-NAT The highly addictive drug is



often made with homemade chemicals.

Meth exploded into Southwest
Virginia a few years ago.

People were making it in their
homes and police were busting those
labs left and right.

But now the number of labs police
are finding has dropped off
dramatically.

Police say most of the Meth is
being imported from Mexico.

In fact, the amount of meth
seized over the last two years has
tripled.

Police say they are now shifting
their focus onto stopping the drug from
being smuggled into the region.

The judge refused to appoint a

Nester.

The suspect has enough money that
he doesn't qualify for court-appointed
counsel.

Nester faces three felony charges
of using a computer to solicit a child.

An undercover police agent posing
as a 14 year old girl says he talked to
Nester over the internet.

The two agreed to meet at an
abandoned building on Route 460.
