Other areas weren't so lucky.


In Campbell County, two large pine

to win over that voting block.

capital murder trial in Abingdon is

were picked...


Morva's accused of killing a
Montgomery County deputy and a hospital
security guard in 2006.


CHANNEL=B VO-NAT


VO-NAT Eleven potential jurors were


selected today.


Out of a pool of more than 60
people in Washington County, only one
person had a connection to the case.


The trial was moved to Abingdon
because too many people in Montgomery
County had close ties to the case.


Today, most of the potential
jurors did not know Morva, or the
victims -- Eric Sutphin and Derrick
McFarland, their family or friends.

mstevens@wdbj7.com Back on February 16th in a
nationally televised game on CBS - the
Hokies looked like a team that had quit
for the season when they embarrassed in
the Dean Dome by North Carolina.


But now just two weeks and a
couple of days later Tech has suddenly
reeled off four straight ACC wins


including a 80-to-58 drubbing of Wake
Forest tonight.


Travis Wells was on hand for the
final home game of the regular season.

Liberty vs. VMI The Flames just lost to VMI one :00 week ago tonight in the Vines Center,
so they were out for a litttle revenge
this evening.


VMI comes out running and Chavis
Holmes will drive down the floor in
transition and find Adam Lonon - makes
the catch and scores off the nice jump
stop on the right block.


But Liberty had a high flyer -
who can get it done. T.J. Bannister
throws the perfect alleyoop lob to
Anthony Smith who throws it down with
one hand. Smith had 30 points tonight.


VMI's top scorer would do his
part. Willie Bell gets the steal hits
ahead to Christian Hunter. He misses,
but Reggie Williams crashed the
offensive glass and gets the putback
for the Keydets. Reggie finished with
30. *CG final V.M.I.

announced today that he finally ready
to walk away from the game he loves so
much after 17 seasons.

*CG file NFL


Favre is now 38 years old, and he
is coming off one of the best seasons
of his career. He retires with over 61
thousand passing yards and 442
touchdowns - both records.


Favre is the one quarterback the
average fan could always relate to and
a lot of that had to do with his work
ethic. He finished his career on a
streak of 253 consecutive regular
season starts -- 275 including playoff
games.


MIKE ON CAMERA

MIKE ON CAMERA It only seems appropriate that
GRAPHIC=HOLD NFL Warren Sapp, the 13 year defensive end


who had so much playing against Favre
over the years also made his retirement


official today. Sapp finished his
career with 96 and half sacks - amazing
numbers for a defensive tackle.
