James Motes says he killed his
sister back in January of 2006 because
she was keeping him away from his
family and she deserved to die.

The prosecution laid out the
details of that murder in what was was
supposed to be the start of a two day
trial yesterday.

Commonwealth's Attorney Cliff
Hapgood showed that Motes went through
extensive trouble in order not to leave
a trail of evidence.

Motes will be sentenced this

April Tech Police were investigating
two separate threats before April 16th.

This is video of Torgeson Hall
being shutdown during one of those

Tech leaders say these latest
threats haven't been as public because
there is still tremendous police
presence on campus and they can sweep
the buildings very quickly.

Also Radford University professor
and former police officer Tod Burke
says these types of threats are very
common after a school shooting.

Kaine's latest executive order
requires the names of people ordered to
get mental health treatment be entered
into the database barring the sale of
guns....

These are people who are
committed involuntarily after being
considered a danger to themselves or
others.

The action is in response to the
shootings at Virginia Tech.


Kaine believes people like Seung-
Hui Cho, suffering from mental
disorders should not be allowed to buy
guns.

The action should also detect
when someone's dishonest on their gun-
application.

The legislature will likely take
further action this winter.
