In July 2000, in one brief stop on the troubled odyssey of John Allen Muhammad, the Army veteran turned up in a government office on the Caribbean island of Antigua, his mother's homeland, looking for work as an elementary school coach. In his application, he listed formidable skills from his 17 years in the military. He claimed to have attended "Special Forces/Sniper School" and even to have "taught urban warfare." Antiguan officials decided that his two diplomas and two letters of reference were obvious fakes - correctly, it appears - and didn't give him a job. But it was the Antiguan connection that apparently brought Muhammad together with a teen-ager named Lee Boyd Malvo who had moved to the island with his mother from Jamaica.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. - Jurors yesterday heard a taped police interview in which teen-age sniper suspect Lee Boyd Malvo told a detective that he and John Allen Muhammad devised detailed plans well in advance for each of the shootings that last fall laid siege to the Washington area in three weeks of terror. Malvo played a verbal cat-and-mouse game with a Prince William County, Va., investigator, who over nearly an hour and a half coaxed a snickering Malvo into making several admissions. Malvo, then 17, said that he and John Allen Muhammad had a strategy for the killings, that he meant to kill all of the shooting victims and that he envisioned wreaking such havoc that the government would meet their $10 million demand or "bring in the military."

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - It's the hottest ticket in town right now, a seat in the tiny courtroom where Washington-area sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad is fighting for his life. And it will take luck - not money - to snag one. Courtroom 10 stretches back just five rows, with seating for 50 spectators. Many of the spaces are reserved for the media and for members of the sniper task force. But a lottery system is giving anyone who is interested a chance to grab one of five spots available to the public for each day of the trial, which could last four to six weeks.

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - One truckload of evidence. Five new metal detectors. Ten new sheriff's deputies. Seventy concrete barriers around the courthouse - and enough deluxe portable toilets to handle a press corps of presidential proportions. The trial of sniper suspect John Allen Muhammad begins Tuesday in Virginia Beach, and the preparations have gone far beyond assembling the evidence and witnesses to prove his guilt or innocence. Lawyers and law enforcement authorities are facing all sorts of other pressing questions, such as: Where do you store the evidence in Virginia Beach?

FAIRFAX, Va. -- When sniper suspects Lee Boyd Malvo and John Allen Muhammad face trial this fall on capital murder charges in Virginia, it will be in part under an untested law written to snare the likes of Osama bin Laden. Enacted in response to the Sept. 11 attacks, Virginia's anti-terrorism law targeted al-Qaida and similar groups, and their operatives. It makes a murder defendant eligible for execution if the killing was intended to influence the government or intimidate the public.
